GOLF- Parents of a staffer at Tiger Woods’ Florida restaurant have filed a lawsuit against the golfer after their son died in a drink driving accident.

Nicholas Immesberger, 24, died last December. His parents allege that he was overserved alcohol at The Woods in Jupiter, Florida which led his to his accident. Immesberger had a blood alcohol level of .256, more than three times the legal limit.

According to TMZ, Immesberger finished his shift on December 10 but stayed at The Woods to drink at the restaurant and was allegedly served to the point of “severe intoxication” before being sent out to his car.

The family claims Woods and Herman knew Immesberger had a habitual problem with alcohol but allowed him to be served anyway.

The lawsuit seeks medical costs and funeral damages plus other “appropriate damages” from Woods.
