Tiger Woods, amid lawsuit, says death of former employee a 'terrible ending'

Tiger Woods his girlfriend and restaurant responsible for man’s death lawsuit claims

Tiger Woods, Erica Herman Wrongful Death Lawsuit: How Rich Is The Golfer?

The parents of Nicholas F. Immesberger, who died at age 24 in a December 2018 drunk-driving crash while employed as a bartender at The Woods Jupiter, filed the suit Monday alleging that Woods, Herman and other "employees, management and owners" of the restaurant "over-served a young man they knew was suffering with the disease of alcoholism". They blame the golfer and his girlfriend for allowing their son to drive home from their Florida restaurant while intoxicated.

The restaurant's manager is Erica Herman, who is Woods' girlfriend and, according to TMZ, recruited Immesberger to the restaurant.

The suit alleges employees knew Immesberger attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and had another alcohol-related crash in November.

Woods, 43, called Immesberger's death a "terrible ending" during a press conference Tuesday in Farmingdale, N.Y., where he is competing in this weekend's PGA Championship - his first tournament since winning his fifth Masters in April. His parents claim that his shift ended at 3 p.m. but that he remained "sitting at the bar" area, drinking until he left to go home with a blood-alcohol level more than three times the state's legal limit. Woods individually participated in serving alcohol to the bartender, the lawsuit claims.

"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".

Immesberger labored at The Woods restaurant in Jupiter that Woods owns.

He also cited a state law that holds the establishment responsible if it "knowingly serves a person habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverage". "Despite this, the employees and management at The Woods continued to serve Immesberger alcohol while he was working as well as after work, while he sat at the bar".

U.S. President Donald Trump hangs the Presidential Medal of Freedom around Golf Champion Tiger Woods' neck at the White House Rose Garden in Washington, on May 6, 2019. On his way home, he crashed his vehicle and died. It is unclear whether Woods or Herman were at the restaurant on December 10 after they had returned home from a trip to Australia on the night of December 7.

The lawsuit seeks damages in excess of $15,000.

Woods is now preparing to compete again at the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black in NY. "It is very sad".
