What kind of frickin’ moron drives a golf cart drunk off the course and onto the streets of town, then gets arrested for DUI?

The editor of this site. And Bill Murray.

THG NOTE: Our staff members do not condone drunk driving in golf carts. At the same time, gosh, that is some fun stuff!

Anyway. You could say that something was lost in translation when Bill Murray was nabbed by police while in Sweden while driving a golf cart drunk.

Actually, you couldn’t. That’s just us looking for a lame play on words to introduce a story involving Bill Murray driving drunk in a golf cart. Which is quite funny on its own, no?

“The cops asked me to come over and they assumed that I was drunk, and I explained to them that I was a golfer,” the 56-year-old actor said.

The Lost in Translation and Caddyshack star said he was in Stockholm to play in a Pro-Am golf tournament when he hitched a ride to a post-event party in a golf cart. When no one wanted to drive home, Murray volunteered to play chauffeur.

Proof positive that drunken generosity will get you every time.

“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,” he said.

Police pulled Murray over as he dropped off his last passengers at a 7-Eleven, he said, adding, “I didn’t know they had 7-Elevens in Stockholm.”

You know, neither did we.

Swedish police took a blood test after the actor refused a breath test. If tests show his blood alcohol level exceeded the legal limit – said to be very low in Sweden – he could face formal drunk driving charges. Make room in that cell, Nicole Richie!
