Actor Bill Murray’s son has been arrested on Monday at a Black Lives Matter protest in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts.
Caleb Murray, allegedly “spit on and bit a police officer, attacked sheriff’s deputies, and threatened arson,” according to a police report of the incident.
He was arrested by Tisbury Police along with Eric Woods, 66, who allegedly used the N-word before punching a teenager.
Video of the arrest shows Murray being handcuffed near Woods’ red truck before Wood is removed from his truck and arrested.
While being transported to a detention facility after his arrest, Murray allegedly spit on and bit an officer.
“Eventually Officer Cutrer was able to finish the transport to the jail, where [Murray] again became uncooperative, attacking deputies,” the police report obtained by MV Times states. “After being put into a cell, he then used a piece of the cell to not only cut himself but cut the deputies.”
Tisbury Police charged Murray with malicious destruction of property, a threat to commit a crime, three counts of assault and battery on a police officer, making terroristic threats, and disorderly conduct.
According to Martha’s Vineyard Times, the charges of making terrorist threats and malicious destruction of property were dropped before Murray’s arraignment Tuesday.
While near Woods’ truck, a window was smashed but the District Court Clerk stated it was not likely that Murray was the one who broke the window in a court document.
“Truck was surrounded by protestors, glass broke, Murray fell to his knees, but no nexus for [probable cause] for vandalism or [malicious] destruction,” the document states.
The document further states that charge of making a terrorist threat “specifically excludes public demonstrations.”
Tisbury Police charged Woods with assault and battery and disorderly conduct. He was eventually released on personal recognizance and given an arraignment date.
