The "Caddyshack" and "Rushmore" star took time out from promoting his new movie, “The Darjeeling Limited,” at the Venice Film Festival to talk to reporters about last month’s headline-making escapade.
Murray said he was merely giving some revelers a ride on their way back from a party, following his appearance at the Scandinavian Masters Tournament, E! Online reported Tuesday.
"I ended up stopping and dropping people off on the way, like a bus," said Murray.
Authorities caught up to him as he was dropping off the last couple at a 7-Eleven.
"(The police) asked me to come over, and they assumed I was drunk, and I explained to them that I was a golfer," Murray said.
They asked him to submit to a breath test, however, Murray refused, citing U.S. law.
Instead, he submitted to a blood test and signed a statement acknowledging he was operating the cart under the influence.
He also agreed to let a police officer plead guilty for him should the case go to trial.
