Golfer Tiger Woods, who boasts a grand total of 81 PGA victories, is being charged, along with his girlfriend, for the wrongful death of one of his bartenders, Nicholas Immesberger.
The Woods Jupiter restaurant and bar is owned by the renowned golfer and managed by his girlfriend, Erica Herman. She is also being charged for Immesberger’s death.
Immesberger, 24, died on December 10, 2018 after crashing at 77 mph in a single-car accident. Prior to the accident, he’d reportedly been drinking after finishing his shift at 3:00 PM until 6:00 PM the same day.
Immesberger’s blood-alcohol level was found to be 3 times over the legal limit when the young man crashed his Corvette and died.
Sources say Immesberger had been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings after a separate crash in November when he was also driving under the influence.
The lawsuit was filed by the young man’s parents, who also added to the report that all employees are encouraged to drink by their coworkers and the general management.
Plus, despite the fact that Woods and Herman reportedly knew of Immesberger’s recovering addiction, they were seen drinking with him a few nights before he died.
The sum of the settlement hasn’t yet been made public, and there are no comments from Woods or Immesberger’s parents.
