Bill Murray’s Drunk Golf Cart Ride

Posted Thursday August 23, 2007 11:48 AM GMT

When vacationing overseas, be careful that you don’t have too much to drink, and end up driving a golf cart through a major city. Bill Murray did just this, and now he’s facing some serious charges.

This past Sunday, Murray was pulled over in Stockholm, Sweden in a golf cart, and authorities smelled alcohol on his breath. But when it came time for a breathalyzer test, the comedian referred to US laws giving him the right to refuse.

According to Inspector Christer Holmlund of the Stockholm Police, "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."

If the test shows the Caddyshack actor was indeed inebriated, he could face a maximum sentence of jail time. But that’s pretty unlikely, according to authorities.

"I have done this since '68 and I've never experienced anything like this," Holmlund told press.
