  • Both Tiger Woods and his girlfriend Erica Herman, were named in the lawsuit

The parents of Nicholas Immesberger, who died in a drink driving accident last December at age 24, filed the lawsuit, saying their son had been over-served alcohol at The Woods in Jupiter, Florida, celebrity website TMZ reported on Monday.

Per reports from United States media the lawsuit, which was brought forward by the Immesberger family, contends that employees of The Woods were aware that the bartender was a "habitual drunkard" and that friends had asked employees to not serve Immesberger alcohol.

Woods is playing in the PGA Championship, one of golf's major events, this week and is scheduled to be part of a tournament news conference on Tuesday morning.

Immesberger had a blood-alcohol level of.256, almost three times the legal limit of.08, at the time of his death, per CBS News.

Goldenfarb acknowledged that neither Herman nor Woods was present the day of Immesberger's death, but he claims they are liable under state law because they own and manage the bar. 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, awful night", Woods said according to TMZ. He later drove back home and on his way lost control of his vehicle. But the lawsuit states employees at The Woods were aware that Immesberger crashed a auto driving drunk in a separate incident one month prior. Immesberger was a bartender at The Woods, which Herman runs, until he was killed in a vehicle accident in December 2018 after leaving the bar intoxicated and getting behind the wheel.

Herman has worked as the general manager of Tiger's restaurant for more than a year. CBS news reports Immesberger's friend told The Woods employees not to serve the man anymore.

He lost control of the vehicle around 6pm, swerving across three lanes before his auto flew through the air and crashed into the grass along Federal Highway in Port Salerno, according to the Palm Beach Post.

The family is seeking damages of more than $15,000, according to NBC News.

Woods spoke to the media on Tuesday from Farmingdale, N.Y., where he's preparing for the PGA Championship, which starts Thursday.
