right now at 11: tiger woods arrested. one of the greatest golfers to ever play the sport...busted for drunk driving in florida. right now at 11:00, tiger woods arrested. one of the greatest golfers to ever play the sport arrested for drunk driving in florida. thanks for joining us on this monday, memorial day. i'm kris sanchez. >> and i'm sam brock. it's another devastating turn in the career of a man widely considered the most mesmerizing athlete of his generation. police have not specified what he was under the influence of. this is a look at the mug shot that you have no doubt seen in all of your social media feeds and will be flashed in headlines for day to come. a disheveled unshaven woods, a very stark contrast from the
11:01 am
immaculately cultivated image that he presented to the world for years. right now we do not know many of the details surrounding the arrest except that jupiter police took him into custody about 3:00 this morning. woods was taken directly to the palm beach county jail. he was released a few hours later on his own recognizance. the arrest comes just over a month after his latest back surgery. woods recently said via his website he hasn't felt this good in years and fully expects to make a return to professional golf. but for maybe the most dazzling and electric golfer ever, his playing career was already heading in the wrong direction. the last of his 14 majors came in 2008. months after that he underwent surgery on his knee and was roiled by an extra-marital scandal that involved dozens of alleged affairs. his career and arguably his reputation have not been the same since. >> all right. now to breaking news here at home. we're just getting word that emergency crews are on scene of a two-alarm grass fire in the oakland hills. oakland fire crews say that the

11:03 am
that white tower. it's that green slide and 48 feet tall and it is shut down. the team of investigators including cal osha and the company that built the water slide here in dublin. it's not clear if they figured out what caused the boy to shoot off the slide during the water park's grand opening. a statement reads in part that we're thankful the 10-year-old involved in the incident walked away without any serious injury and we're working closely with the team at wave and both of the hoy-speed slides have been shut down pending a full investigation. the boy got slid off the slide in the so-called run-out in the bottom, designed to slow riders down. he landed on the concrete a few feet below the slide's edge. the city of dublin which owns and operates the water park was
11:04 am
treated more scrapes and bruises. the park, as i mentioned, shut down dublin plunge and the screamer. a third slide was shut down because of a faulty flow meter unrelated to what happened and that's reopened. the city tested emerald plunge for a number weeks before saturday's owning and cal osha certified it this past friday, the day before. the water park, it did reopen just a few minutes ago this morning as was planned for this memorial day, but you can see behind me there's not many people here we suspect because of this unusually cool weather. reporting live in dublin, bob redell, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, bob. turning to your forecast this memorial day. cool temperatures for the remembrance ceremonies planned in communities all around the bay area. we'll get to some of those memorial day owe vents in just a moment. >> as bob was just saying, kind of cool for the time here. let's take a tour of the bay area with our traffic cameras.
