Why did this Ghostbuster throw two handsets belonging to fans, off of a rooftop terrace?

The 65-year old actor was attending a party at the Vesuvio lounge in Carmel, California that was hosted by Justin Timberlake when he thought he saw flashes going off from multiple handsets. Upset that diners at the restaurant were snapping pictures of him, he confronted a trio of phone owners eating at the restaurant. Murray tossed two handsets off of the roof, while a third landed on a cushion. And no, we don't know if one of them was the Motorola DROID Turbo 2 with a shatterproof screen.
According to media reports, Murray offered to replace the handsets tossed off of the roof. The owners of all three phones decided not to press charges against Murray, but they also denied taking pictures of him. As for the damaged handsets, when the owners went down to street level to collect them, they were told that someone had driven up in a car and scooped them up.
So keep this little story in mind if you should ever happen to run into Bill Murray and decide that you want to snap a picture of the actor. Your best bet is to keep your handset in your pocket and away from his grasp.

I thought this site was about phones, not celebrity gossip.

Gee, I must have misread the initial report. I thought he threw two phones off of the roof, not celebrities. Alan F.

He left? Interesting.... It was a little uncomfortable to have that guy support me in arguments, Like he agreed with me while not fully understanding my perspective on something and taking things way out of context.

That is pretty annoying where people use the super bright camera flash as a notification light, especially in a dim location like a theater or in a car. I equate it to "look at me" hipsterism more than practicality.

What if the phones had pictures or video of a special event not yet backed up on them. You got a lot of nerve to grab someone's phone and throw it off a roof. someone tries that to me idc who they are there's gonna be a fight.

Bill Murray has always been an arrogant asshole. He really needs a good ass kicking.

I see his point! Dam some fools taking my pic with out asking first! That's not a public forum it's a private gathering. That's why it's illegal for a Paparazzi to do this sorta s**t in lounges/restaurants without an invite. My response to charges if any "Lets play the see who has deeper pockets game shall we" see you in court!

The thing is though its not even certain that they were actually taking pictures of him. Also, he could've simply asked them to delete the photos if they did take any, rather than throw their phones off the roof, which may have contained precious photos or sensitive information.
