Louis Murphy

Sometimes, you drink too much and get a hangover. Other times, you fall asleep on a flight of stairs at a wedding, only to wake up in the middle of the night and find yourself locked alone in a museum.

Choices do have consequences.

In the case of the latter, the victim of his own actions was Louis Murphy, a veteran wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Over the weekend, Murphy attended the wedding of a former college football teammate at the Flagler Museum in South Florida.

While there, Murphy drank and had a good time -- so much that he wound up falling asleep in the museum's courtyard. Later, he woke up to find that everyone in the wedding party had left the building -- and the doors were locked.

Nervous, Murphy broke the glass window on a door, unlocked it, and then called a friend, who called the police. The police arrived and freed Murphy.

Healthiest Beers For Your Tailgate Cooler

 

Butte Creek Organic India Pale Ale

Different from our other light beer suggestions, this beer is higher in calories, but low in carbohydrates. Butte Creek Organic India Pale Ale contains about 201 calories and has 1.9 grams of carbohydrates. The company uses 100 percent organic malts and hops for all four of their beers, which only adds to their health factor.

 

Guinness Draught

The popular dark Irish beer has about 126 calories and 10 grams of carbohydrates. Although this number may be discouraging, there is research to support that darker beer has nutritional value. Guinness contains flavonoids, which are similar to the antioxidants found in red wine.

 

Yuengling Light Lager

This beer is below 100 calories, but contains almost 10 grams of carbohydrates. However, the company didn’t want to stray too far from the taste of their original lager, which explains why the beer isn’t as low in calories and carbohydrates as the rest.

 

Amstel Light

This beer is only 95 calories, but starts to creep up in carbohydrates at five grams. Interestingly enough, Amstel markets this beer as the “official beer of the burger.” Unfortunately, just because you are having a light beer doesn’t mean you should have a burger in your other hand. Try pairing this beer with a healthy burger option.

 

Michelob Ultra

Still under 100 calories, this beer has 95 calories and 2.6 grams of carbohydrates. Michelob Ultra markets this beer as a part of a healthy lifestyle that includes activities such as running, cycling, golf, and tennis. You can decide how true that is.

 

Miller Genuine Draft 64

Low calories and low carbs. This beer clocks in at 64 calories and 2.4 grams of carbohydrates; plus, it has a crisp, light taste.

 

Beck's Premier Light

This low-calorie option has 64 calories and 3.9 grams of carbohydrates. It is classified as a light lager with a low alcohol percentage of 2.3 percent, so it is a nice, refreshing option that’s perfect for a summer cookout or day at the beach.

 

Budweiser Select 55

The lowest-calorie beer we selected clocks in at just 55 calories and 1.9 grams of carbohydrates. If you’re looking out for your waistline, this is definitely one of the best options.

The wideout released a statement addressing the incident, and the description of his train of thoughts is both informative and hilarious.

"With no one around, my only option was to break a small glass pane of the door in order to access a phone and call for help," Murphy said in a statement to the Tampa Bay Times. "I dialed the police and explained that I needed assistance. It's unfortunate that I needed to break the glass, but the police officers on the scene and museum staff acknowledged that I didn't have many other options. I'm working with the museum to ensure everything is properly handled."

Fortunately, the museum isn't pressing charges against Murphy. The damage to the glass is estimated at about $1,000, and the museum and Murphy will work out repayment to cover the cost of the window.

The lesson: Always use the buddy system when drinking.
