Tiger Woods sued over restaurant staffer's drunk driving death

Tiger Woods (left) is being sued over the drunk-driving death of Nicholas Immesberger, 24 (right), a bartender who worked at his Jupiter, Florida restaurant called "The Woods" and was known to have a problem with alcohol.

Woods and the general manager of the restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, were named in the wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of the 24-year-old bartender, USA Today reported.

According to TMZ, Immesberger finished his shift on December 10 but stayed at The Woods to drink at the restaurant and was allegedly served to the point of "severe intoxication" before being sent out to his vehicle.

Immesberger, who played football at Bridewater College in western Virginia, lost control of his vehicle on his way home and swerved across three lanes before going airborne and overturning in Port Salerno, Florida Highway Patrol said at the time, according to the Palm Beach Post. According to the New York Daily News, Immesberger had a 0.28 BAC when he was killed in a crash back in December. Woods, the family said, is "directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management. were not over-serving its employees/customers". He was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom last week at a White House ceremony.

In the lawsuit, the family claimed that Woods, his girlfriend and his restaurant company should have prevented the man from drinking too much and driving to his death.

Representatives for Tiger Woods did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

The lawsuit claimed, "Tiger knew, or reasonably should have known, that Immesberger was habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverages, and/or was a habitual drunkard".

The lawsuit filed by attorneys Craig Goldenfarb and Spencer Kuvin seeks medical and funeral expenses as well as other "appropriate damages". The lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County on Tuesday (NZ time) alleges Immesberger was over-served for about three hours after his shift at The Woods concluded, before the fatal crash. Immesberger died at the scene.
