Tiger Woods responds to drunk-driving suit amid allegations tapes were 'destroyed'

Tiger Woods responds to drunk-driving suit amid allegations tapes were 'destroyed'

A bartender at Tiger Woods' Florida restaurant was allegedly over-served after his shift last December and died in crash driving home. His blood alcohol level was a.256, more than 3 times the legal limit.

Woods expressed his sorrow over Immesberger's death in response to a question about the lawsuit at a news conference ahead of the 101st PGA Championship, the year's second major golf tournament which starts on Thursday at Bethpage Black on Long Island in NY. The family is also saying that the restaurant destroyed the surveillance footage of Immesberger at the bar.

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

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

"He referred to The Woods as his family and his friends", Belowsky said through tears. He said it was a "terrible night, a bad ending".

Stay tuned for updates on this case. Immesberger died at approximately 6pm local time on December 10, around three hours after finishing his shift.

The suit alleges employees knew Immesberger attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and had another alcohol-related crash in November. It also states the golfer himself "knew Immesberger personally and through information and believe (sic), Herman had discussed Immesberger and his drinking of alcohol with Tiger".

It also says Woods "knew, or reasonably should have known, that (Immesberger) was habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverages, and/or was a habitual drunkard".

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 report says that the driver lost control of the vehicle, which then traveled across several lanes to the grass divider, ramped up a culvert, went airborne and then collided with a sign and a parked vehicle.

The lawsuit filed by attorneys Craig Goldenfarb and Spencer Kuvin seeks medical and funeral expenses as well as other "appropriate damages".

The lawsuit says Immesberger was a bartender at The Woods.

Immesberger's parents sued Woods directly claiming he "was directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management. were not over serving its employees/customers", according to the report.
