Police were called to Bill Murray's home in March (08) after his estranged wife got drunk and became "physical" with their children, according to police reports.
Jennifer Butler Murray filed for divorce last month (May08), accusing her husband of almost 11 years of domestic abuse, drug addiction and infidelity.
But police near their home in Charlston, South Carolina were called out twice in one day in March (08), while Murray was in California.
According to police documents obtained by the New York Post, cops first visited the family home after neighbours had heard Butler Murray drunkenly shouting at her children.
The attending officer writes, "I spoke with her and advised her of the complaint. The w/f (white female) seemed to be very impaired and didn't want me on her property any more, she slammed the door and I left the residence."
Later the same day another neighbour called the police, after two of Butler Murray's kids had run to her house asking for help, because their mother was drunk.
The police report continues, "I then had the complainant meet me at the police station to talk with the juveniles. They informed me that their mother had been drinking heavily and had (become) physical with them."
Butler Murray's lawyer has refused to comment to the Post about the reports.
Murray and Butler Murray have four sons: Caleb, Jackson, Cooper, and Lincoln, all aged between 14 and six.
