Tiger Woods sued over restaurant employee's deadly drunk driving crash

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods and his girlfriend Erica Herman were named in a lawsuit filed by a Florida family alleging their bartender son was overserved booze at the golfer's restaurant before being killed in a drunk-driving accident.

Nicholas Immesberger's family claims the 24-year-old bartender was allowed to stay at the restaurant after his shift and drink "to the point of severe intoxication" before he set out in auto and ended up in a one-person, fatal rollover.

The family of the employee, Nicholas Immesberger, filed the suit in West Palm Beach, Fla., saying that Woods and Herman, who is the restaurant's general manager, were both responsible for the staffer's death. He was pronounced dead with a blood-alcohol reading of.256, per Harig.

A lawsuit filed Monday against Tiger Woods claims the golfer contributed to the death of an employee of his restaurant who was in a one-car crash in December.

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

The lawsuit states Woods and Herman were drinking with Immesberger at the bar of The Woods "only a few nights before the fatal crash".

Woods, who is now preparing to compete again at the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black golf course, had a net worth of $800 million.

The lawsuit, which reportedly seeks "in excess of" $15,000, claims that Immesberger was over-served for multiple hours following his shift at The Woods.

A police said Immesberger lost control of his vehicle on his way home and swerved across three lanes before going airborne and overturning.

The suit also alleged that the employees and management at The Woods promoted drinking by employees, CNN reported. The 43-year-old will be seeking to earn a second straight major title following his win last month at the Masters, which was his first major victory since 2008.

A copy of a citation obtained by DailyMail.com shows Immesberger had been cited for speeding and failure to produce a drivers license on December 4, 2008, just six days before he died.
