Tiger Woods and his girlfriend Erica Herman were named in a lawsuit filed by a Florida family alleging their bartender son was overserved booze at the golfer’s restaurant before being killed in a drunk-driving accident. TMZ reported Monday that the victim — identified as Nicholas Immesberger — was battling alcoholism, according to his parents.

In the lawsuit, the family claimed that Woods, his girlfriend and his restaurant company should have prevented the man from drinking too much and driving to his death. Immesberger worked at The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, Florida, and is said to have known the golfer personally.

Woods, who is currently preparing to compete again at the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black golf course, had a net worth of $800 million. Woods recently received the Presidential Medal of Freedom after winning The Masters. 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. He earned $1.5 billion since he turned pro in 1996. Woods has several sponsors associated with him including, Nike, TaylorMade, Bridgestone, Monster Energy, Hero MotoCorp, among others.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in Palm Beach County by attorneys Craig Goldenfarb and Spencer Kuvin, added that the 24-year-old stayed past his shift one night in December 2018, and was then was served drinks to the point of “severe intoxication.” He later drove back home and on his way lost control of his car. Immesberger's vehicle went airborne and overturned in Port Salerno, Florida Highway Patrol said at the time. It was later revealed that his blood alcohol level was .256 at the time of the fatal crash, more than three times the legal limit.

The suit also alleged that the employees and management at The Woods promoted drinking by employees, CNN reported.

The family claims Woods “was directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management... were not over serving its employees/customers.” The restaurant is said to be primarily run by Woods’ girlfriend. The family also claimed that Woods and Herman were drinking with Immesberger just days before the fatal crash and "reasonably should have known" he was a "habitual drunkard."

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

The 43-year-old golfer was yet to comment on the lawsuit filed against him. According to CNN, he was scheduled to be part of a tournament news conference Tuesday morning.

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 Dec. 4, 2018, just six days before he died.
