Bill Murray’s son Caleb was arrested and charged on Monday with arson, disorderly conduct and assault and battery on a police officer.
According to a report obtained by Page Six from the Edgartown District Court, the 27-year-old was participating in a Black Lives Matter march on Martha’s Vineyard and allegedly got into an altercation with police officers who were responding to an incident taking place at the protest.
The incident unfolded during a confrontation between protesters and resident Eric Woods, who allegedly used the N-word before punching a teenager in the crowd.
In video footage from the march, Woods can be seen sitting in his truck surrounded by protesters. Shortly after, police are seen arresting Caleb, forcing him to the ground.
While being transported to the Dukes County Jail after his arrest, Caleb was allegedly uncooperative. Things reportedly got worse once he was placed in a cell.
“After being put into a cell,” the report alleges, “he then used a piece of the cell to not only cut himself but cut the deputies.”
Another officer claims to have heard Caleb say, “that once he got out of jail he was going to burn down all the f–king buildings.”
Caleb has been charged with disorderly conduct, assault and battery on a police officer, threatening to commit a crime and one count of arson.
On Tuesday, he was arraigned in an emergency session and ordered to be held without bail until a bed was available in an evaluation facility. His case was continued until July 31.
Caleb is the oldest son from his father’s second marriage to Jennifer Butler. The couple had four sons before splitting in 2008.
Lawyers for Caleb were unavailable for comment.
