Tiger Woods is being sued for the drunk-driving death of a bartender from his Florida restaurant

Tiger Woods is being sued over the drunk-driving death of a bartender who worked at his Florida restaurant and was known to have a problem with alcohol.

A lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports alleges that Woods contributed to the death of Nicholas Immesberger, 24, who is said to have been over-served following a shift at The Woods restaurant in Jupiter to the point of ‘severe intoxication’ before fatally crashing his vehicle while attempting to drive himself home on December 10.  

Woods is currently preparing to compete again at the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black, in his four PGA Tour appearance following his historic comeback win at the Masters Tournament in Augusta, Georgia in April.

DailyMail.com reached out to Woods’ representatives but did not immediately receive a response.

The complaint filed in Palm Beach County by the family of Immesberger names Woods, his girlfriend, Erica Herman, who managed the establishment, and the restaurant itself as defendants. 

According to the lawsuit, Woods and Herman were aware that Immesberger struggled with alcoholism but still permitted him to be served in the restaurant.

The complaint states that Woods ‘was directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management … were not over serving its employees/customers.’ 

Immesberger was said to have been recruited to work at the restaurant by Herman, and both Woods and Herman had been drinking with him in the days leading up this death.

His family alleges Woods and Herman knew Immesberger personally and were aware  or ‘reasonably should have known’ of his tendency to over-consume alcohol as a ‘habitual drunkard.’

Immesberger is said to have drank alcohol at the restaurant for hours after finishing his shift that day, and was then allowed to go out to his car to drive himself home.

He lost control of his car at around 6pm Eastern, and crashed and died in the accident while trying to get home.

The Palm Beach Post reported that he swerved across three lanes and his vehicle flew through the air before coming down in the grass along Federal Highway in Port Salerno.
