Louis Murphy Gets Locked Inside Museum After Falling Asleep Drunk At Florida Teammate's Wedding

Louis Murphy had a good time at wedding of a former Florida Gators' teammate this weekend. A very, very good time. 

The night ended kind of poorly, though. 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' wide receiver woke up early Saturday morning locked inside the Flagler Museum, where former Florida teammate and Ravens receiver Deonte Thompson had his wedding the night before. 


Murphy, 29, was not charged with any crime, but woke up early Saturday morning and found himself locked in the Flagler Museum, where former Gators teammate and Ravens receiver Deonte Thompson had his wedding the night before. According to a Palm Beach Police report, Murphy told police that he had been drinking, went to the museum's courtyard and fell asleep on the stairs. "When he woke up, everyone was gone, and the doors were locked," the report states.

Murphy told police he "got nervous and broke the glass on one of the doors in order to unlock it," then called a friend, who called 911. Police arrived at 1:12 a.m., and then the museum's facilities manager arrived and estimated the damage to the window at $1,000. The two parties agreed to "work out the repair costs amongst themselves," according to the report.

This weekend was a good one for NFL players in the state of Florida to fall asleep at inopportune times, apparently. 

Jaguars' running back Denard Robinson fell asleep at the wheel of his car and crashed into a pond. Thankfully, both he and his female passenger were OK.
