The lawsuit, filed this week, alleges that Nicholas Immesberger was over-served at The Woods Jupiter restaurant following a shift in December 2018, before dying in a vehicle crash in his Corvette with a blood alcohol level triple the legal limit.
Golf great Tiger Woods and his girlfriend Erica Herman have been named in a lawsuit accusing them and a Florida restaurant they own of "over-serving" alcohol to an employee who was later killed when he attempted to drive home.
According to the lawsuit, Immesberger struggled with alcohol abuse.
The lawsuit claims Immesberger was over served alcohol on the afternoon of December 10 which led him to become severely intoxicated.
The lawsuit alleges that Immesberger continued to be served alcohol despite being visibly inebriated and that staff didn't object when they became aware that he was intending to drive home. According to the suit, he had a blood-alcohol reading of.256, over three times the legal limit in Florida.
The 43-year-old golfer was yet to comment on the lawsuit filed against him.
The lawsuit, brought by Immesberger's parents, said he finished his bartending shift at 3 p.m. and then sat at the bar drinking for several hours.
"We're all very sad that Nick passed away". He was allegedly recruited to work at the restaurant by Woods' girlfriend.
Klopp: Liverpool must manage 'emotional and mental effects' of Champions League comeback
Pep Guardiola's men finished a point ahead of Liverpool , with both the sides registering respective wins on the final day. However, after what we have witnessed this week anything is possible and Liverpool can only look after their own business.
The restaurant's manager is Erica Herman, who is Woods' girlfriend.
"So we have through our investigation uncovered evidence to show that the bar knew what happened, they knew about the crash that night and shortly thereafter that video evidence was destroyed and deleted off the servers they had there at The Woods".
He lost control of his vehicle on Federal Highway in Martin County and was pronounced dead at the scene on December 10, 2018. 'It was a bad, awful night, a bad ending'.
The family claims Tiger is being sued individually because he "was directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management. were not over serving its employees/customers".
The suit alleges employees knew Immesberger attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and had another alcohol-related crash in November.
The lawsuit, filed Monday, states "the employees, management and owners of The Woods over-served a young man they knew was suffering with the disease of alcoholism".
Woods is now preparing to compete again at the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black in NY.
