September 21st 1970. Comedian Bill Murray was preparing to board a plane at Chicago's O'Hare Airport. The young funny guy was celebrating his 20th birthday, and made a comment while getting ready to board that alerted officials that something was up...

Murray who was heading to Denver, told another passenger that he was carrying two bombs in his luggage. Um, Bill...This comment was overheard by a ticket agent who alerted authorities.

Federal agents approached Bill Murray (who was a pre-med student at Regis University at the time) they did not find a bomb, but they found a whole lotta weed.
