Actor Bill Murray has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving in a golf cart in Stockholm, Sweden. I kid you not. Apparently, the Swedes don't put up with such nonsense as drinking and driving an electric car at 5 mph on their city streets in the middle of the night. The "Stripes" star was stopped by police who, allegedly, smelled booze on his breath. WTF! Silly Swedes - he's Bill freaking Murray!
Asked why the funnyman was stopped, a detective said, "There were no obvious signs ... like when someone is really tipsy."
It must have been the golf cart that attracted their attention then?
The spokesman went on to explain: "He refused to blow in the (breath test) instrument, citing American legislation. So we applied the old method - a blood test. It will take 14 days before the results are in."
The Caddyshack star, who was in Stockholm for a golf tournament, signed a document admitting driving under the influence and permitted a police officer to enter a guilty plea on his behalf if the case goes to court.
The 56-year-old comic genius will only be charged if his blood alcohol level is higher than the legal limit and faces a fine.
Luckily, Murray wasn't charged for illegal golf cart cruising: "It isn't illegal in Sweden to ride a golf cart in traffic," the detective said. "But it is highly unusual. I have done this since '68 and I've never experienced anything like this."
