Tiger Woods and his caddie Joe LaCava are being sued by a golf fan who claims he suffered injuries following an incident at the 2018 Valspar Championship.
According to the Associated Press, a civil complaint that was filed on Tuesday in Pinellas County alleges that Brian Borruso from Florida tried to take a selfie but was then "intentionally shoved" by Woods' caddie LaCava.
The incident is said to have happened by the 13th green on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort in Florida.
According to the report, the suit claimed Borruso had to go to hospital as a result of his injuries, and Borruso's lawyer explained the suit was delayed to get a "better understanding of the injuries."
The suit read as the following:
"As a result of the culpable negligence of Defendant, Joseph LaCava, Plaintiff, Brian Borruso, suffered injury and damages including, but not limited to, bodily and mental injury, and resulting pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, mental anguish, loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life, expenses of hospitalization, medical and nursing care and treatment, loss of ability to earn income, and aggravation of previously existing condition. The losses are either permanent or continuing."
Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg is said to have not yet replied to a follow-up text from the Associated Press.
One video, watch above, shows LaCava walking quickly into a group of fans with his arm out saying: "You've got to back it up," but then the video turns off.
In another video, watch below, you can hear someone say: "He [LaCava] just pushed him. He just shoved him right out of there."
According to the suit, Borruso wants "judgment for damages, costs, prejudgment interest for that portion of the damages that have been previously liquidated, and any other relief this Court deems appropriate against the Defendant."
Woods, who went on to lose by one stroke to Paul Casey at the Valspar Championship that week, is apparently named in the suit all because LaCava is employed by him.
