Tiger Woods Facing Wrongful Death Lawsuit


Tiger Woods and the GM of Woods’ Florida restaurant face a wrongful death lawsuit brought by the parents of a 24-year-old bartender of the Jupiter establishment.

Nicholas Immesberger had an estimated blood alcohol concentration of 0.28—more than three times the legal limit—when Immesberger died after his 1999 Chevrolet Corvette left the roadway. The lawsuit filed in Palm Beach County on Monday alleges Immesberger was over-served for about three hours after his shift at The Woods concluded, before the fatal crash.

Immesberger had a history of alcohol abuse, and the lawsuit alleges “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.”

Oh, yeah, those parents are correct.

Tiger should be watching over their kid in between raising his own and fight his own pain killer addiction from multiple back surgeries.

Anyone else think they are suing Tiger personally because—I don’t know—he has the most money?

All the money in the world won’t bring back their son.

Maybe Tiger will mention that at the news conference scheduled for this morning.
