A newly released toxicology report shows the bartender whose family is suing Tiger Woods had THC in his system.

Nicholas Immesberger, 24, died in a crash on Dec. 10 2018 after his 1999 Chevy Corvette went airborne and overturned on northbound Federal Highway and SW Colonial Drive.

Immesberger's parents are suing Woods, his girlfriend, restaurant manager Erica Herman, and the Woods Restaurant, claiming their son was over-served alcohol the day he died. He was a bartender at the Woods Restaurant.

The lawsuit states Woods, Herman and others at the restaurant knew Immesberger was an alcoholic and they knowingly over-served him during and after his shift regularly.

His blood alcohol level was 0.28, over three times the legal limit, according to the lawsuit. The toxicology report shows Immesberger had levels of THC in his system that were much higher than the state reporting limits.

Spencer Kuvin, the attorney representing Immesberger's family, said in a press conference Tuesday that the videotape showing Immesberger drinking for three hours at the Woods Restaurant was destroyed because of his death.

"We have evidence to show that that videotape showing Nick at the bar that night after he got off at 3 p.m. drinking for three hours at the bar was destroyed shortly after the crash had occurred," he said. "We have, through our investigation, uncovered evidence to show the bar knew what happened, they knew about the crash that night, and shortly thereafter that video evidence was then destroyed and deleted off the servers they have at The Woods."

Tiger Woods made a comment on the case during a PGA Tour news conference in New York on Tuesday morning.

"We are all very sad that Nick passed away," he said. "We feel bad for him and his entire family."
