Bartender Whose Family Is Suing Tiger Woods Was Drunk, Had THC in His System

The bartender of Tiger Woods' restaurant who had a fatal crash after he left work had the principal psychoactive constituent of marijuana in his blood.

In December 2018, an employee of golf icon Tiger Woods died in a fatal car crash while driving under the influence of alcohol.

Nicholas Immesberger, 24, was a bartender at Woods' restaurant "The Woods" in Jupiter, Florida and had been drinking heavily, but toxicology reports reveal a new twist to the story.

TOXICOLOGY REPORT REVEALS DRUG USE

Immesberger's parents are suing Woods and his girlfriend Erica Herman, the general manager of the restaurant, accusing them of serving their son even though they knew he was an alcoholic and contributing to his death.

However, the toxicology report reveals that Immesberge had a blood alcohol level of .256 and levels of THC well above the state reporting limits.

Now that high levels of THC were detected through the toxicology screening of his blood, it may cast significant doubt on the restaurant's culpability.

FATAL COMBINATION OF ALCOHOL AND MARIJUANA

According to the American Addiction Center, marijuana and alcohol have similar effects but act through different mechanisms.

Both result in sedation, alterations in judgment, perceptual effects that include time distortions and even minor hallucinogenic effects, and physical effects that include slowed reflexes and decreased motor coordination. In combination, the alcohol potentiates the THC.

WRONGFUL DEATH SUIT IN DANGER?

The wrongful death lawsuit targets claimed that Woods and his staff were responsible for Immesberger's intoxication, and served him alcohol at the bar after his shift ended at 3 am.

Now that high levels of THC were detected through the toxicology screening of his blood, it may cast significant doubt on the restaurant's culpability.

THE FATAL ACCIDENT THAT CLAIMED NICHOLAS IMMESBERGER'S LIFE

Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reported that Immersberger was driving above the posted speed limit and was not wearing a seat belt during the single-car crash that claimed his life.

The accident took place at 6 am, three hours after Immersberger's shift at Wood's restaurant ended.

Immesberger attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and had another alcohol-related crash in November.

TIGER WOODS ACCUSED OF IGNORING BARTENDER'S DRINKING PROBLEM 

Nicholas Immesberger's parents accuse Tiger Woods of ignoring their son's problem with addiction, just as he had ignored his own.

The Immesbergers claim that Woods and his staff knew that Nicholas attended Alcoholics Anonymous, but served him alcohol regardless.

The Immesbergers' lawsuit alleges that the employees and management at the restaurant promoted drinking by employees, and are thus responsible for Nicholas' death. The family is suing Tiger Woods for an undisclosed amount.
