Bill Murray's 1970 Digs

Bill Murray's 1970 Digs


Wilmette, Illinois (IL), US
On September 21, 1970, Bill Murray celebrated his 20th birthday by getting arrested at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport. As reported by the Chicago Tribune, Murray was waiting to board a plane to Denver when he “jokingly told another passenger that he was carrying two bombs in his luggage.”

Murray’s comment was apparently overheard by a ticket agent who, missing the humor, summoned federal agents. While a subsequent search of Murray’s luggage did not turn up any explosive devices, United States marshals instead found five bricks of marijuana. The pot totaled ten pounds and was valued at $20,000.
