Tiger Woods Named in Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Employee's Drunk Driving Death

Woods and the general manager of the restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, were named in the wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of the 24-year-old bartender, USA Today reported.

According to TMZ, Immesberger finished his shift on December 10 but stayed at The Woods to drink at the restaurant and was allegedly served to the point of "severe intoxication" before being sent out to his vehicle.

At the time of his death Immesberger had a blood alcohol level of.256, which is more than three times the legal limit of below.08 in Florida.

It also says Woods and Herman knew of his disease but were drinking with Immesberger a few nights before the fatal crash.

Representatives for Tiger Woods did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

He spent four hours exploring the bottom of the trench in his sub, built to withstand the vast pressure of the deep ocean. Over four hours exploring the seabed of the trench he saw sea creatures, plastic bags and lolly wrappers.

Woods and Herman returned from a trip to Australia on December 7.

The suit said employees were allowed to drink on and off the job at The Woods.

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.

Tiger Woods of the United States looks on during a practice round prior to the 2019 PGA Championship at the Bethpage Black course on May 13, 2019 in Bethpage, New York. The suit, filed in Florida, claims Immesberger was overserved at the restaurant before getting into his vehicle to drive home. He was said to have lost control of his 1999 Chevrolet Corvette and veered right across three lanes of the highway, running into a grass area before going airborne. As Woods has staged a career comeback that began past year and culminated in his triumph last month at the Masters, Herman has become a familiar figure to golf fans, who have seen Woods greet her with affection after completing rounds. Woods is coming off his thrilling victory at the Masters last month, which led Donald Trump to present Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom last week.

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.
