Tiger sued over restaurant staffer's drink driving death

Tiger sued over restaurant staffer's drink driving death

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 auto crash in his Corvette with a blood alcohol level triple the legal limit.

Tiger Woods faces a lawsuit from the parents of a staffer at his Florida restaurant who died in a drink driving accident after allegedly being overserved alcohol, TMZ reported Monday. The suit also claims they "ignored Immesberger's disease, they fueled it by over-serving him alcohol to the point of severe intoxication and then sending him out to his auto to drive home".

Woods and Herman knew of his Immesberger's alcohol problems, the lawsuit claims, and were drinking with Immesberger nights ahead of the fatal crash. Immesberger's blood-alcohol level was.256, three times the legal limit, at the time of his death.

The lawsuit says Herman recruited Immesberger as a bartender despite knowing his condition. He was allegedly over-served before heading to his vehicle and attempting to drive home.

"Well, we're all very sad that Nick passed away", said the golfer.

Tiger Woods has been named in a wrongful death lawsuit involving a former employee at his Florida restaurant, The Woods. It is unclear if Woods or Herman were at the restaurant December 10.

Immesberger also had been involved in another alcohol-related crash in November, the suit adds.

Many of her musical works, including Sentimental Journey and Que Sera Sera , are still beloved by many worldwide to this day. Terry Melcher , who died in 2004, became a songwriter and record producer, working with such stars as the Beach Boys.

"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".

The Florida Highway Patrol said at the time that Immesberger's accident occurred at approximately 6 p.m. along a stretch of US 1 nearly 16 miles north of The Woods.

"You've seen the good and bad, the highs and the lows, and I wouldn't be in this position without your help", Woods said after President Donald Trump placed the award around the athlete's neck.

According to the lawsuit, "The employees and management at The Woods had direct knowledge that Immesberger had a habitual problem with alcohol", and knew that he attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings to try treating his disease.

The lawsuit is understood to be seeking in excess of $15,000 (€13,400).

The attorney cited Florida law that holds an establishment responsible if it "knowingly serves a person habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverage".
