Tiger woods and girlfriend named in wrongful death suit
Tiger Woods and restaurant manager Erica Herman, who is Woods’ girlfriend, and The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, Florida, are being sued for the wrongful death of an employee, who after working a shift in December drank alcohol at the restaurant before being killed in a car crash.
Nicholas Immesberger had a blood alcohol reading of .256, more than three times the legal limit in Florida, according to the suit filed in West Palm Beach, Florida. The lawsuit says Immesberger lost control of his car on Federal Highway in Martin County and suffered fatal injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene on Dec. 10, 2018.
Immesberger was a bartender at The Woods, and the suit alleges that Woods, Herman and other employees were aware that Immesberger had a drinking problem but regularly over-served him during and after his work shifts.
The lawsuit alleges that Woods and Herman were “drinking with him at The Woods bar only a few nights before the fatal crash of December 10, 2018.’’
