He released a statement apologizing for his behavior afterward.

“I would like to apologize to my family, friends and supporters, as well as the PGA Tour and Waste Management Phoenix Open for the incident reported today,” Bowditch said. “As I intend to fully cooperate with the authorities, I will not be making further comment at this stage.”

If convicted of extreme DUI, Bowditch could face 30 days in jail.
