His family is suing Tiger Woods and his girlfriend Erica Herman, the general manager of the restaurant.
The lawsuit, which was filed on Monday and obtained by CBS states, "The employees, management, and owners of The Woods over-served a young man they knew was suffering from the disease of alcoholism".
At a Tuesday press conference to discuss his upcoming turn in the US PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in Long Island, New York, Woods commented briefly on the matter. It was revealed that Immesberger had a blood alcohol level of.256 which is three times the legal limit.
The lawsuit also accuses The Woods of encouraging drinking on the job and claims that Immesberger was driven home on several occasions after he was "served so much alcohol that he was unable to function properly". He was allegedly permitted to drive home following three hours of drinking at The Woods after his shift at the restaurant concluded. "It was a bad night, a awful ending".
Woods recently received the Presidential Medal of Freedom after winning The Masters. His family alleges that Woods and Herman were aware or "reasonably should have known" of their bartender's tendency to over-consume alcohol as a "habitual drunkard". Immesberger died on December 10, 2018, after getting into a crash while driving drunk.Читайте также: Two Killed In Dubai Plane Crash
Nicholas Immesberger crashed his vehicle after spending the night of December 10 drinking at Woods' restaurant.
Under Florida alcohol laws Woods could potentially be held liable as the proprietor of the establishment even if he wasn't present on the day Immesberger served.
Immesberger was said to be traveling "at a high rate of speed" on Federal Highway when he lost control of his 1999 Corvette and swerved across three lanes before going airborne and overturning in Port Salerno, the Florida Highway Patrol said, according to the Palm Beach Post.
The wrongful death suit is asking for an unspecified amount of damages.
"Just like he ignored his own problem for years, he and his girlfriend chose to ignore this problem that his own employee had", attorney Spencer Kulvin said of Woods and Herman.
Tuesday, Woods was asked about the case during his pre-PGA Championship news conference.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
