Louis Murphy Passed Out At A Wedding And Got Trapped In A Museum

From the Tampa Bay Times comes an exceptionally endearing story about Buccaneers receiver Louis Murphy, who recently attended former college teammate Deonte Thompson’s wedding at the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach, Fla. Turns out, if you have a bit too much to drink and fall asleep in the museum, you might end up locked inside.

According to a police report, Murphy fell asleep on some stairs in the museum’s courtyard, and then woke up the next morning to discover that everyone from the wedding had left and that the doors were locked. He broke the glass pane on one of the doors in order to unlock it, and then called the police for assistance. Murphy released a statement about the incident:

“This was really just a series of small unfortunate circumstances,” Murphy said Wednesday in a statement. “With no one around, my only option was to break a small glass pane of the door in order to access a phone and call for help. I dialed the police and explained that I needed assistance. It’s unfortunate that I needed to break the glass, but the police officers on the scene and museum staff acknowledged that I didn’t have many other options. I’m working with the museum to ensure everything is properly handled.”


Don’t ever let anyone tell you that Louis Murphy doesn’t know how to fuckin’ party.
