Bill Murray Faces DUI After Driving Through Stockholm in a Golfcart


Bill Murray, star of "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day", was driving through Stockholm, Sweden, in a golfcart when he was stopped by police. "He refused to blow in the (breath test) instrument, citing American legislation," said an officer.

The police instead took blood which will take 14 days to process. Murray signed a document admitting he was under the influence and agreed to let an officer plead guilty for him should the case end up in court.

Murray will only be charged if the test results show his blood alcohol level was over the limit. Although a very high reading could mean jail time police say it would more likely be a fine. It is not illegal to drive a golfcart in traffic in Sweden.

  "...Citing American Legislation..."  
Anyone know what he 'cited' that would allow him to refuse a breathalyzer?

  @Discarded Vet  
Yeah I believe he cited the "I'm famous and am allowed to drive under the influence" legislation.

Ya know, sadly, I would not doubt for one second the validity of that being true !!
