Tiger Woods, Girlfriend Sued After Bartender's Death

Tiger Woods, Girlfriend Sued After Bartender's Death

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

According to the suit, Immesberger finished a shift on December 10, 2018 - but stayed at the restaurant for hours where he was served alcohol to the point of "severe intoxication" before he was sent out to his auto to drive home. It was later revealed that his blood alcohol level was.256 at the time of the fatal crash, more than three times the legal limit.

In the lawsuit, the family claimed that Woods, his girlfriend and his restaurant company should have prevented the man from drinking too much and driving to his death.

Representatives for Woods could not be immediately reached for comment on the lawsuit.

Woods, who won the 2019 Masters earlier this year, is playing in the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York.

The suit said employees were allowed to drink on and off the job at The Woods. The suit, filed in Florida, claims Immesberger was overserved at the restaurant before getting into his auto to drive home.

WhatsApp said the attack had all the hallmarks of a private company known to work with governments to infect phones. He said WhatsApp also provided information to USA law enforcement officials to assist in their investigation.

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.

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 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".

As he said after accepting the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House earlier this month, Tiger Woods knows well about the down times.

The lawsuit was seeking "in excess of" $15,000, USA Today reported. Attorneys representing the parents announced a news conference to be held Tuesday at the attorneys' offices in West Palm Beach, Fla.

According to the Daily Mail, a copy of a citation shows Immesberger was summoned for speeding and failure to produce a driver's license on December 4, 2018, just six days before he died.
