Bill Murray's wife recently claimed in divorce papers that the actor is a violent pot and alcohol addict — but police documents show that Mrs. Murray has seemed to be very drunk at times herself, and was said to have gotten "physical" with her children.
Jennifer Butler-Murray has gotten a reputation in her suburban Charleston, S.C., neighborhood as an avid drinker who gets "physical" with her children and gets into bizarre police incidents, the New York Post reported.
On March 17 of this year, Butler-Murray allegedly got drunk and two of her kids ran over to a neighbor's house for help, according to a report filed with the Sullivan's Island Police Department.
The trouble started after a witness saw her shouting loudly at one of her kids, the report said. Cops went to her home to investigate.
"I spoke with [her] and advised her of the complaint," the responding officer wrote. "The w/f [white female] seemed to be very impaired and didn't want me on her property anymore, she slammed the door and I left the residence."
Later, a neighbor called cops saying Butler-Murray's kids had come to his home seeking help.
"I then had the complainant meet me at the police station to talk with the juveniles ... They informed me that their mother had been drinking heavily and had [become] physical with them," the report said.
Butler-Murray's lawyer, Richard Rosen, declined to comment for the New York Post.
The actor, 57, and Butler-Murray, 42, married July 4, 1997, and they have four children — Caleb James, 15, Jackson William, 12, Cooper Jones, 11, and Lincoln Darius, 7. Butler-Murray wants sole custody of the children.
