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.
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.
