Tiger Sued For Wrongful Death!
Speak about bad timing! Golf legend Tiger Woods is the target of a new lawsuit claiming that he permitted his Florida restaurant to over-serve alcohol to an employee who struggled with alcoholism, which led to his death.
Tiger is said to own the restaurant – The Woods Jupiter – and is the general manager.
Both him and the restaurant were named in the wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of the 24-year-old bartender, Nicholas Immesberger. Reports claim that the deceased had a blood alcohol content of about 0.28 — more than three times the legal limit — when he died after his car went off the road as he was driving home from work last December.
The lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County on May 13 alleged that before the crash, Immesberger was over-served for about three hours after his shift at the restaurant was over.
The lawsuit claimed, “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.”
