PEBBLE BEACH, California– Bill Murray's relationship with at least a couple of golf fans may have taken a turn in an unfortunate direction Thursday night.
Murray, in town to play at the AT and T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, attended Justin Timberlake's party at the Vesuvio restaurant in Carmel-by-the-Sea that evening when fans crowded in on him and started taking numerous photos. 
Murray, annoyed at the excessive intrusion, grabbed three fans' phones and tossed them. Two made it over the restaurant’s second-floor rooftop, but the third never made it off the rooftop and eventually was found in a seat cushion, according to police.
According to a Carmel police incident report, two police cars were dispatched to a reported disturbance at the restaurant at 10:30 p.m.
When the police arrived, Murray was not on the scene and the two fans who had their phones tossed onto the street didn’t want to press charges, but only wanted to be compensated for the loss of their property.
The police contacted Murray’s representative and they confirmed that any damage to the objects would be paid by Murray.
While Murray could have been charged with theft or vandalism, according to Cmdr. Paul Tomasi of the Carmel police, no charges were filed.
When asked to speak on Saturday after the third round of the AT&T event, Murray declined, saying, “I’m done for today, thank you.”
The entertainer and his playing professional, D.A. Points, missed the 54-hole cut on Saturday in the pro-am portion of the event. Points earned a "made cut, did not finish" distinction on the pro leaderboard, thanks to a three-round even-par total. That means he won't be teeing it up on Sunday in the pro portion, either.
