How fucking classic.

Oh my, this is just priceless: Bill Murray was driving a golf cart around Stockholm and got pulled over for “drunk” driving. Since the alcohol level limit in Sweden is like 0.02 % (one beer or so), there’s not much doubt in my mind he will be found guilty. But that’s not really that interesting.

The thing to point out here is the sight of Bill Murray driving a golf cart in Swedish traffic. Come on, just imagine a big street with lots of volvo’s queueing up behind a golf cart, honking, pointing fingers, but suddenly noticing it’s Bill MOTHERFUCKEN Murray, smiling drunk off his ass. How awesome is that?

MSNBC reports:

STOCKHOLM, Sweden – Bill Murray could face a drunken driving charge after cruising through downtown Stockholm in a golf cart and refusing to take a breath test, citing U.S. law.

Police officers spotted the “Caddyshack” star early Monday in the slow-moving vehicle and noticed he smelled of alcohol when they pulled him over, said Detective-Inspector Christer Holmlund of the Stockholm police.

“He refused to blow in the (breath test) instrument, citing American legislation,” Holmlund told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “So we applied the old method — a blood test. It will take 14 days before the results are in.”

Murray, who had been at a golf tournament in Sweden, signed a document admitting that he was driving under the influence, and agreed to let a police officer plead guilty for him if the case goes to court, Holmlund said.

“Then he was let go. My guess is he went back to America,” Holmlund said.

He said the 56-year-old actor-comedian would only be charged if tests show his blood alcohol level exceeded the legal limit, which is quite low in Sweden.

A very high alcohol level could lead to a prison sentence, but Holmlund said fines were more likely.

“There were no obvious signs, like when someone is really tipsy,” he said.

An e-mail to Murrays lawyer, David Nochimson, seeking comment wasnt immediately returned.

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, tournament head Fredrik Nilsmark said.

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.
