A lawsuit filed Monday against Tiger Woods claims the golfer contributed to the death of an employee of his restaurant who was in a one-car crash in December.

The employee, Nicholas Immesberger, had a blood alcohol level that was more than three times the legal limit, according to the lawsuit. The suit, filed in Florida, claims Immesberger was overserved at the restaurant before getting into his car to drive home.

In addition to Woods and his restaurant, The Woods Jupiter, the lawsuit named the golfer's girlfriend, Erica Herman, who was the general manager of the establishment in Jupiter, Florida.

They “knew (Immesberger) was suffering from the disease of alcoholism,” the lawsuit states, and not only “ignored” that but “fueled it” by letting him drink at the restaurant’s bar “to the point of severe intoxication.”
