Tiger Woods named in lawsuit after restaurant employee dies in auto crash

The parents of Nicholas Immesberger who worked as a bartender at Woods Jupiter restaurant filed the lawsuit

And it says the restaurant's employees, managers and owners allowed the 24-year-old man to be over-served even though they knew he was an alcoholic.

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.

A lawyer representing Immesberger's parents charged in a press conference Tuesday that video of their son drinking at the restaurant on the day he died was "destroyed by the Woods ... as a direct result of [Immesberger's] death and knowledge that he was there that night and they wanted to get rid of that evidence". It was revealed that Immesberger had a blood alcohol level of.256 which is three times the legal limit.

The lawsuit, brought by Immesberger's parents, said he finished his bartending shift at 3 p.m. and then sat at the bar drinking for several hours.

"Well, we're all very sad that Nick passed away", said the golfer. It is unclear if Woods or Herman were at the restaurant December 10.

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

Kuvin said there had been surveillance footage of Immesberger drinking extensively on the night of the crash, but claims that the restaurant destroyed it.

Republicans and allies of President Donald Trump criticized lawmakers involved in issuing a subpoena to Donald Trump Jr . Cohen told Mueller's team that it appeared the two had discussed the subject before.

Kuvin alleged that Immesberger had been over-served at the restaurant and crashed his vehicle then as well.

He lost control of his vehicle on Federal Highway in Martin County and was pronounced dead at the scene on December 10, 2018.

The suit also alleged that the employees and management at The Woods promoted drinking by employees, CNN reported.

Tiger Woods of the United States looks on during a practice round prior to the 2019 PGA Championship at the Bethpage Black course on May 13, 2019 in Bethpage, New York. 'It was a bad, awful night, a bad ending'.

Immesberger's attorneys want Tiger, Erica and The Woods restaurant to be held responsible for the tragedy ... saying they all personally knew Immesberger had a problem with alcohol but allowed him to be overserved anyway.

It continued: "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 suit is seeking an unspecified amount of damages.
