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.

Actually,Norway,Denmark and Finland have equally tough laws:and God help you if you injure or kill someone while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The dumb cluck deserves whatever the authorities throw at him.We Americans must learn to respect and obey the laws of whatever country the're in ! It's too bad that we don't apply our laws strictly in court,instead of letting slimy lawyers making a mockery of the legal system by getting guilty clients off,often with just a slap on the wrist,by finding some obscure technicality. Down with our horde of ambulance -chasing sheisters! . The Shadow

Ellis, Bill Murray is a laugh riot. You are clearly too young to know. Stick to High School Musical, that's about your speed.

I hope he didn't actually say, "Do you realize who I am?"

I don't get it. Why was my post taken down? I didn't say anything rude or crude, and it was on the subject. It wasn't any different than #10, and I originally posted mine before #10.

Come on Bill ! How do you get pulled over when your hotel is less than a mile away from where you were drinking ! And in a golf cart, are you kidding ?

#17 Frank Yes that's true. A few years ago (and it may be true even now, I'm not sure) the penalty for DUI in Bulgaria was execution. That's it. You drive drunk and you were executed. Whew.

A drink in Sweden costs at least $15 dollars. They charge so much to discourage drunk driving. Hope they throw the book at him.

Listen you jerky tmz reporters - why don't you check on what the legal limit is in Sweden before making your stupid remark about the eye rolling thing. And wasn't he going to and from a nightclub? Slowly? Here's a hint - I N T E R N E T. Use it, abuse it. Your choice.

Sounds like he was having a good time to me. At least he wasn't driving a Hummer at 70 MPH!! Bill, I'd lick your toes if you wanted me to.
