Bill Murray: Marinated Swedish Meatball?

8/22/2007 11:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cinderella story. Outta nowhere ... Bill Murray could face a drunk driving charge ... in Sweden! Skal! Police spotted Murray cruising around downtown Stockholm in a -- wait for it -- golf cart!

Swedish cops say they stopped the 56-year-old Murray in the slow-moving vehicle and noticed the smell of alcohol on his breath. "He refused to blow in the (breath test) instrument, citing American legislation," the police told the AP. "So we applied the old method -- a blood test. It will take 14 days before the results are in." In the meantime, enjoy the lutefisk!

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 (Yes judge, right away judge!).

Hmm ... we thought that in Sweden you weren't legally drunk until your eyes rolled to the back of your head. Who knew?

A rep for Murray did not immediately return a call for comment.

Sad. I like this guy too bad he had to be out in public drunk. For goodness sakes STAY HOME AND GET DRUNK if you must. These celebrities are not the brightest bulb on the tree are they....

Why did he leave the golf course?! Golfers drink and drive those carts all the time, while they are playing. No big deal. But when you get on a public street, it's the same as driving a car. Too bad, so many celebs are brain dead.

Spell Check.    

I make it a rule never to drive while intoxicated. Actually it's more of a guideline than a rule.

Now if he took off all his clothes, seduced anything, sang of how wonderful suicide and alien invasion genocide is.. smoked pot or took drugs and drank himself to death while visiting there.. nothing illegal would have happened. Dumb ol' Bill.

Great story! Just a couple of notes: Lutefisk is Norwegian, not swedish and the drinking limit for driving is so low most swedes stay out of alcohol completely if they are driving (unless they want to break the law).
