Nicholas Immesberger died in a fatal crash on Dec. 10, 2018. His blood-alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit, the lawsuit says.
The family of Nicholas Immesberger, a bartender who died in a car crash last year, is suing Tiger Woods, his girlfriend and his restaurant company, saying they “fueled” his death by over-serving him alcohol and then sending him to his car to drive home.
Nicholas Immesberger Parents Statements
Immesberger’s parents, Scott Duchene and Mary Catherine Belowsky, say that Woods and Herman, who is the general manager of the restaurant, were aware that Immesberger struggled with alcohol addiction. They have filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging that on the day of Immesberger’s death, employees and management of the “Woods” served Immesberger so much alcohol that his blood alcohol content spiked to more than three times the legal limit, and then was allowed to drive home.
The lawsuit alleges that the staff and management knew that Immesberger was trying to control his addiction and had been attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. It claims that Woods and Herman had drinks with Immesberger a few days before his death, despite knowing about his addiction.
The wrongful death lawsuit filed Monday in West Palm Beach says Nicholas F. Immesberger was served excessive amounts of alcohol before the Dec. 10 car crash. (by the restaurant Immesberger worked at; Immesberger was a known alcoholic) https://t.co/zTmNTy67gG

Immesberger crashed his car about 20 miles away from the restaurant and suffered fatal injuries after drinking for about three hours at the “Woods.” Neither Woods nor Herman has publicly commented on the lawsuit.
The family held a press conference during the morning of May 14, which you can watch in its entirety below. Their attorney accused the “Woods” of intentionally destroying video evidence that showed Immesberger drinking at the restaurant on the day of his death, and that the lawsuit was filed in order to prevent the destruction of further evidence.
