Tiger Woods, Girlfriend Sued After Bartender's Death

Tiger Woods, Girlfriend Sued After Bartender's Death

Tiger Woods is facing a wrongful death lawsuit that accuses the golfer and his Jupiter restaurant of overserving an employee, who later crashed his vehicle and died.

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.

The lawsuit was filed on Monday in Martin County, Florida, and alleges that Immesberger was served excessive amounts of alcohol prior to his death in a auto crash on December 10, 2018.

The lawsuit contends that Herman, the restaurant's general manager, "personally knew Immesberger, specifically recruited him to work at The Woods and was well aware of Immesberger's habitual abuse of alcohol".

His female friend, Erica Herman, is same old manager.

The family claims Woods and Herman knew Immesberger had a habitual problem with alcohol but allowed him to be served anyway.

Woods was speaking at his PGA Championship press conference on Tuesday when one reporter asked him about the death of Nicholas Immesberger.

"One of the most significant issues we have here is the destruction of evidence", said Spencer Kuvin, an attorney for the Immesberger family.

Legal court documents reveal that Immesberger's blood-alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit at.256.

Goldenfarb acknowledged that neither Herman nor Woods was present the day of Immesberger's death, but he claims they are liable under state law because they own and manage the bar. A bartender there, Immesberger stayed and had drinks following a work shift at the Jupiter, Fla., restaurant. 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. "It was a bad night, a awful ending".

Last week, Tiger Woods received the Presidential Medal of Freedom award from President Trump about a month after his win at the Masters. "It is very sad".

Immesberger's parents are seeking more than $15,000 in damages to cover medical and funeral expenses as well as other emotional damages.

Woods is playing in the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York, and was at the course early Monday to practice.
