Tiger Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, arrested on DWI charges in suburban NY

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Tiger Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, has been arrested on drunken driving charges in suburban New York.

Police say Steinberg was stopped during a sobriety checkpoint Saturday night in Ardsley and arrested on DWI and aggravated DWI charges.

Sgt. David Fisher says Steinberg, who told authorities who he was, was arrested after he was issued a field sobriety test. Police say his blood alcohol content was .18 per cent. The legal limit in New York for DWI is .08 per cent.

Steinberg did not immediately respond to an email requesting comment Sunday, the day Woods won the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio.
