Lawyers say Tiger Woods' restaurant destroyed evidence to hide guilt

Lawyers say Tiger Woods' restaurant destroyed evidence to hide guilt

According to a lawsuit filed Monday in Palm Beach County, Mary Belowsky and Scott Duchene say the employees and management of The Woods over-served their son, Nicholas F. Immesberger, on December 10, 2018. He finished a shift on December 10 but stayed at the restaurant where he was served alcohol to the point of "severe intoxication" before he was sent to drive his vehicle home.

The suit claims that Nicholas Immesberger, who worked as a bartender at The Woods Jupiter, wrecked his Corvette and died after allegedly being over-served at the golfer's flagship restaurant and sports bar, Golfworld reported.

Immesberger had an estimated blood alcohol concentration of 0.256 - more than three times the legal limit in Florida - when his 1999 Chevrolet Corvette left Federal Highway and overturned at about 6 p.m. on December 10, 2018.

"The employees and management at The Woods had direct knowledge that Immesberger had a habitual problem with alcohol", the lawsuit read.


"We're all very sad that Nick passed away", Woods said.

The complaint filed in Palm Beach County by Immesberger's parents names Woods, Herman, who managed the establishment, and the restaurant itself as defendants.

She said that The Woods Jupiter had failed her son and called on all restaurants and bars to take the issue of over-serving employees more seriously.

The restaurant's manager is Erica Herman, who is Woods's girlfriend and, according to TMZ, recruited Immesberger to the restaurant. "A awful ending and just we feel bad for him and his entire family". The suit alleges that the employees and management at The Woods promoted drinking by employees.


"In fact, employees and managers knew that Immesberger had attended Alcoholic Anonymous meetings prior to the night of his crash and was attempting to treat his disease".

TMZ reports the parents believe Woods and Herman are at fault, saying the pair knew Immesberger had a drinking problem, but let him get served alcohol anyway. According to the Forbes, Woods was the highest-paid athlete for 11 straight years when he was at the peak of his game and winning 14 major championships.

Kuvin said there had been surveillance footage of Immesberger drinking extensively on the night of the crash, but claims that the restaurant destroyed it.

Woods, who won the 2019 Masters earlier this year, is playing in the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, New York.


The lawsuit seeks "in excess of" $US15,000.
