Lawsuit blames Tiger Woods for drunken driver's death

BETHPAGE NEW YORK- MAY 13 Tiger Woods of the United States looks on during a practice round prior to the PGA Championship at Bethpage Black

Tiger Woods is being sued for allegedly allowing his Jupiter restaurant to over serve alcohol to a staffer, who later died in a drunk driving accident.

Immesberger had a history of alcohol abuse, and the lawsuit alleges "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 claims Immesberger was over served alcohol on the afternoon of December 10 which led him to become severely intoxicated.

The lawyers for the family of Nicholas Immesberger have alleged that The Woods Jupiter has destroyed video evidence of the employee drinking at the bar for three hours - to the point of severe intoxication - prior to his fatal crash in December. Immesberger's blood-alcohol level was.256, three times the legal limit, at the time of his death.

Woods's girlfriend, Erica Herman, has also been named in the suit.

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.

According to TMZ's report, Immesberger knew Woods personally and was "recruited to the restaurant by general manager Erica Herman, who is also Tiger's girlfriend". He said it was a "terrible night, a awful ending".

Immesberger later crashed his vehicle in Martin County on Southeast Federal Highway near Southeast Colonial Drive and died. According to the Forbes, Woods was the highest-paid athlete for 11 straight years when he was at the peak of his game and winning 14 major championships.

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

The suit is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.

"Well, we're all very sad that Nick passed away", Woods told a pre-tournament news conference. Immesberger died at the scene.

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 lawsuit also accuses The Woods of encouraging drinking on the job and claims that Immesberger was driven home on several occasions after he was "served so much alcohol that he was unable to function properly".
