Murray hits the clubs. . .in a golf cart!

Damn it!! Yet another of my heroes has fallen. . .okay, maybe more of a stumble. At least compared to such contemporaries as Belushi, Farley, and Hartman.

Bill Murray was pulled over in downtown Stockholm, Sweden early last Monday morning, and refused a blood-alcohol test. His refusal automatically incurred a blood test, per Swedish law. This will take up to two weeks for results.

Okay. He DID smell of alcohol, he WAS driving a golf cart through town (Legal in Sweden by-the-way), and refused the breath-alyzer.

On the other hand, this incident occurred in an extremely liberal country where DD arrests normally result in mere fines. And, not to trivialize drinking and driving, the man was driving a GOLF CART - I cannot fathom him causing injury to anyone with that mode of transportation! As long as he wasn't packing plastique and mumbling about gophers, FREE WILLY!

The golf cart had been on display for a week outside the downtown hotel where Murray and other VIPs attending the Scandinavian Masters golf tournament were staying, and Murray apparently drove the golf cart to the trendy Cafe Opera nightclub, less than a mile away, and was pulled over on his way back to the hotel.

The tournament head noted that the vehicle wasn't intended for guests but added: "I don't hold any grudge against Bill Murray for borrowing our cart for a while." HELL no, you don't! You have "Mr.Caddyshack" playing in your tournament and he HAD to borrow your golf cart to hit the local clubs? You'd think someone would have offered him a limo ride there. . .

I guess only the "bare-bush-flashing" "drugged out of their skull" celebs get preferential treatment.

I had a crush on Bill Murray once. It didn't last too long, but it made me realize that funny guys really turn me on.

If he were a Republican, he would have been caught giving someone a bj in the golf cart. Driving it while a little tipsy, maybe...not that big a deal, IMO.
