Bill Murray was stopped by Swedish police yesterday for drunkenly driving his golf cart back to his hotel. Reuters reports:

Murray was brought to Norrmalm police station, in the north of the city, and given a blood test for alcohol after he refused to take a breath test, said station commander Jan-Olov Lundgren. The American had been stopped while driving the golf cart from Cafe Opera, an upscale restaurant in the center of town, back to his hotel.

A golf cart is one of two vehicles you should be allowed to drive drunk. The thing goes three feet a minute. If you hit somebody with one, they pretty much deserved it for having the reflexes of a tuna sandwich. What’s the other vehicle I think you should be allowed to drive drunk? A speeder-bike from Return of the Jedi. I can’t go into the details due to pending litigation, but it basically involves myself, an Ewok and a Mai-tai the size of a dishwasher.

    He was only tring to out smart the (God Damn) gopher. Can’t things be like
    they used too.Most stars were always tanked and drove and they always had
    a little shit pocket.

    “He probably wasn’t even drunk. If I’m not mistaken, in Sweden you can’t drive even if you only had one small beer.”

    The limit for drunk driving is a a quarter of what it is in the UK. It is 0.02% alcohole in your blood. Bill was having 0.036% in his blood. This is however not a big offence. He will get a ticket for approximatley 100 $ and will not be able to drive, in Sweden, for three months. So I guess he can live with it.

    “Thats what he gets for screwing around in those third world countries.
    Hell, he could buy that place 5 times over in strait cash.
    He will pay them off , come home and make great jokes about it.”

    Well, I think you must be the american no. 1 idiot. Sweden is ranked 5 on the Human Development Index while the USA is only ranked 8. You may have more millionaires and billionaires in the US but Sweden more egalitatarian policys make living in our country far better for those who dont happen to be rich and succesfull. And that counts for something to I think.

    I am from Sweden and I am proud over our low limit percent when it comes to drive with alcohol in your blod. And by the way. Bill Murrey did offer to drive other people on this golf cart because no one wanted to drive (because they had been drinkin) and he drove them on the street in this golf cart, and not on the pavement and that was not so smart. But I think he is a GREAT actor any way. He is so funny.
