Watch out, Sweden! Murray's Driving

Celebrities getting pulled over for drunk driving? Happens all the time.

Celebrities getting pulled over for drunk driving ... in a golf cart ... in downtown Stockholm, Sweden? That only happens to Bill Murray (well, as far as we can tell).

Murray, the Caddyshack star and big draw at Pebble Beach, was pulled over by Stockholm police for driving his cart at an extremely low rate of speed (as if there's any other kind in a cart) on a downtown street, according to a report on People magazine's Web site.

Police smelled alcohol on Murray's breath. Citing American laws, the actor -- who was in Sweden to attend a golf tournament -- refused a breathalyzer test. Results from his blood test will be available in 14 days.

In the meantime, he signed a statement admitting to driving under the influence and appears to have left Sweden. If guilty, he'll likely pay a fine.

Police said there was no evidence of theft of the cart. Which begs the question: What's the going rate for a golf cart rental in downtown Stockholm? And can you add a second driver?
