Tiger Woods is facing a wrongful death lawsuit that accuses the golfer and his Jupiter restaurant of overserving an employee, who later crashed his auto and died.

According to TMZ, the lawsuit was filed by the parents of 24-year-old Nicholas Immesberger, who had worked at Tiger's restaurant in Jupiter, Fla.

Immesberger had a blood alcohol level of.256, three times Florda's legal limit, when he fatally crashed his vehicle. 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 auto home. His blood alcohol level at the time of the crash was 0.28, more than three times the legal limit.

After working a shift in December, Immesberger, 24, drank alcohol at the venue before being killed in a drunk driving accident. He was allegedly over-served before heading to his vehicle and attempting to drive home.

'We're all very sad that Nick passed away, ' Woods told reporters.

"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.

It's unclear whether or not Herman or Woods were at the restaurant on the day of the man's death.

What is the Iran nuclear deal? "I don't see that there's a better one, or any proposals for a better agreement", he said. The treaty is at risk of collapsing a year after the USA pulled out and piled on fresh sanctions against Iran.

Woods's girlfriend, Erica Herman, who manages the restaurant, is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

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".

The suit said employees were allowed to drink on and off the job at The Woods. They also claim Tiger and Erica had been drinking with Immesberger just days before the fatal crash and "reasonably should have known" he was a "habitual drunkard". "It was a awful, bad night", Woods said.

"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".

"It's very sad", Woods said at the PGA Championship in NY on Tuesday.

The suit seeks damages "in excess of $15,000" and a jury trial.

According to the Daily Mail, a copy of a citation shows Immesberger was summoned for speeding and failure to produce a driver's license on December 4, 2018, just six days before he died.
