Just a week after President Donald Trump honored him with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, golfer Tiger Woods was sued for the wrongful death of a former bartender at a restaurant he owns. Nicholas F. Immesberger, 24, died Dec. 10, 2018, in a car crash while driving home intoxicated from The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, Fla. In the lawsuit filed Monday, the bartender’s parents claim that Erica Herman, Woods’ girlfriend and the general manager of the restaurant, knew Immesberger was an alcoholic when she hired him and that workers at the restaurant over-served him drinks the night of his death despite knowing his condition.
“We’re all very sad that Nick passed away,” Woods said when asked about the case. “It was a terrible night, a terrible ending. And we feel bad for him and his entire family. It’s very sad.” —L.L.
