PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Bill Murray was one of the stars of the show Saturday at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, but after the round the entertainer opted not to discuss reports that he threw fans’ phones over a balcony at an area restaurant the night before.

According to multiple reports, Murray was at a function Friday night at Vesuvio, a restaurant near Pebble Beach. After multiple fans attempted to flash photos of the 65-year-old, Murray became frustrated and tossed more than one phone from the restaurant’s second-floor balcony.

Police were reportedly called to the restaurant, and Murray’s management confirmed that an incident took place. According to multiple reports, they also confirmed that Murray plans to cover the replacement cost of any property that was damaged.

After completing his third round, Murray posed for pictures with fans behind the 18th green but declined to discuss the matter with multiple media members.

“I’m done for today, thank you,” Murray said.

Murray has been a mainstay at this event for several years and combined with D.A. Points to win the amateur portion of the event in 2011. He and Points failed to make the 54-hole cut this year.
