Murray Laughs Off Drunken Golf Cart Arrest

LATEST: BILL MURRAY has broken his silence over his alleged drink driving arrest in Sweden last month (19Aug07), insisting he was only "dropping people off" home following a golf tournament. Murray was stopped by police while driving a golf cart in downtown Stockholm. Cops took a blood test after the actor refused a request for a breath test - and are awaiting the results. The Lost In Translation star insists he was just offering a lift home in the cart, which he had obtained following a pro-am golf tournament earlier in the day. He says, "I was driven to a party celebrating the event in a golf cart. After the party, the people that drove in the golf cart did not wish to drive so I said 'I can drive' and I drove. "I ended up stopping and dropping people off on the way like a bus. I had about six people in the thing and I dropped them off one at a time." Murray said he was approached by police when he dropped two friends off at a 7-Eleven convenience store. He explains, "I didn't know they had 7-Elevens in Stockholm, they (the police) just asked me to come over and assumed that I was drunk. I tried to explain to them that I was a golfer."
