Tiger Woods has been sued by the parents of Nicholas Immesberger, a former employee at his restaurant, following his death.
Nicholas’ parents claim their son was over-served alcohol at The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, Florida — saying it led to his drunk driving death in 2018.
He worked as a bartender, with his parents claiming he knew Tiger personally, and say Tiger’s girlfriend, Erica Herman, recruited Nicholas.
In their lawsuit, the parents claim Nicholas finished his shift on December 10, 2018, but he remained inside the restaurant for hours, drinking alcohol which was allegedly served by the restaurant, to the point of “severe intoxication” before he was sent to his car to drive home.
On his drive home, he died in a crash with his blood alcohol level more than 3 times the legal limit, reading .256.
This morning during a press conference, an attorney for Nicholas’s estate and his parents believe The Woods’ restaurant “destroyed” video evidence showing Nicholas drinking at the bar for hours after his shift.
According to their attorney, they want The Woods restaurant, Tiger and Erica to be held responsible for the tragedy; apparently, they all knew about Nicholas’ problem with alcohol but allowed him to be overserved.
During his PGA Championship press conference, Tiger said, “We’re all very sad that Nick passed away. It was a terrible, terrible night … A terrible ending and just we feel bad for him and his entire family. It’s very sad.”
The family are seeking funeral and medical expenses, plus “appropriate damages”.
