Murphy had been drinking vodka for several hours at his golf club before the fatal car accident
Prior to the accident, Murphy had been boozing on vodka at his golf club. He got behind the wheel despite the advise of several of his friends not to take his car. After the accident he refused to take the breathalyzer test. However a blood test effectuated four hours later indicated a alcohol level of .13, well above the limit of .08 allowed by law.
