Bill Murray tosses fans’ cellphones off restaurant roof
Imagine for a moment that you are Bill Murray. You’re cranky, tired, aging, dining at yet another fancy California restaurant and it basically feels like Groundhog Day all over again.
Then a couple cellphone cameras flash within 10 feet of your face and it all goes downhill from there.
This is what took place when three fans began taking photos of Murray, 65, at the Vesuvio restaurant in Carmel, Calif., on Thursday night. Murray’s response: He snatched the phones and tossed them off the second-story rooftop like a rockstar. A super-rude rockstar.
“At 10:30 p.m. last night, our offices were called to a disturbance on the rooftop of Vesuvio,” a police spokesperson told People. “When we arrived we met with three people who stated a subject identified as 'Bill Murray’ took phones out of their hands and threw them.”
Murray dipped before the cops arrived but said through his rep that he’s willing to pay for the broken phones.
“He admits to being at the restaurant [Thursday] and he was willing to pay for any damages people may have had,” authorities said.
No charges were filed because walking away with a story like that plus a new phone is way better than engaging in a legal battle with a beloved rich guy.
