The parents of a former bartender at Tiger Woods’ restaurant in Jupiter, Florida have filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the golfer, his girlfriend and other employees.
Nicholas Immesberger’s parents say Woods, his girlfriend Erica Herman — who is the restaurant’s manager — and other employees fed their son drinks on the job with the understanding that he was an alcoholic. They then allowed him to get in his car and drive home. Immesberger crashed his Corvette and was killed.
The lawsuit, which seeks in excess of $15,000 in damages, claims “Tiger is individually liable in this action because he individually participated in the serving of alcohol.” It continues, “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.” (USA Today)
- If Tiger really knew that Immesberger was an alcoholic, he never should have hired him to be a bartender.
- The restaurant had a responsibility to take his car keys away.
- $15,000 is nothing to Tiger. He’ll make this lawsuit go away very quickly.
