The owner of a Martha’s Vineyard restaurant that was the scene of a dust-up between actor Bill Murray and a photographer said Friday that Murray never touched the photographer, who was to blame for the incident.

The account from Katherine Domitrovich, owner of Lola’s in Oak Bluff’s, was starkly different from statements that acclaimed music photographer Peter Simon gave previously to police and the Globe.

Domitrovich said she was in the kitchen at Lola’s during the encounter Wednesday night but was told by customers that Simon began taking pictures of Murray and didn’t comply with the actor’s request to stop.

Martha ' s Vineyard (Wampanoag: Noepe; often simply called The Vineyard ) is an island located south of Cape Cod in Massachusetts that is known for being an affluent summer colony.

So eventually, Domitrovich said, Murray tossed a glass of water at Simon, but he never got physical as Simon claims.

“Nothing went on, other than a glass of water,” Domitrovich said. “Peter is taking this to a whole different dimension because he wants the PR. I don’t care about PR, that’s why I don’t want photographers in my place.”

Meanwhile Simon, the 71-year-old brother of singer Carly Simon, told the Globe Friday he plans to decide in the next couple of days whether to file any criminal charges over the incident.

“I’ve got to talk to a few lawyers and figure if it’s worth it, and so forth and so on,” Simon said. “I think [Murray] has to suffer some sort of consequence for what he did.”

Simon also said Domitrovich lied when she told police that he went to the restaurant specifically to photograph Murray.

“I didn’t even know he was going to be there,” Simon said, adding that he thought Dimotrovich was trying to protect a celebrity customer by giving a false account. “It’s probably a feather in her cap, to have this guy come [to Lola’s]. ... I would like her to apologize. I knew my intentions were good.”

Simon said he also wants an apology from Murray. He said he wouldn’t be considering pressing charges if the actor apologized.

Attempts to reach Murray for comment haven’t been successful. He has not responded publicly to Simon’s allegations.

Simon told police he was on assignment taking pictures for The Martha’s Vineyard Times at Lola’s when Murray accosted him, according to an incident report obtained by the Globe.

Simon said he was photographing a couple taking in a band at the restaurant for his weekly feature, Vineyard Scene, when he stepped into an alcove away from the dance floor to check to see if he got any good shots.

Alan Dershowitz is not the only person allegedly stirring up trouble in Martha ' s Vineyard this summer. A newspaper photographer , who happens to be singer Carly Simon's brother, claims that he was assaulted by Bill Murray at a restaurant on the island.

Bill Murray was involved in a dispute with Carly Simon’s brother, photographer Peter Simon, at a restaurant in Martha ’ s Vineyard on Wednesday night, according to the Boston Globe.

There, Simon felt someone, later identified as Murray, grab him from behind, turn him, and slam him up against a door, he said during a phone interview Thursday night. He thought it was a bouncer at first, he said, but then Murray, using an expletive, said he should throw Simon out of the restaurant and cause him bodily harm.

It wasn’t until they separated and Simon saw the man dancing that he recognized him as Murray, whose career has included roles in “Broken Flowers,” “The Limits of Control,” and “What About Bob?”

Jamie Kageleiry, associate publisher for the Vineyard Times, confirmed Thursday night that Simon’s assignment was to photograph the band and people enjoying the music. The paper didn’t know Murray would be there, she said.

But on Friday, Domitrovich scoffed at the notion that Simon didn’t expect Murray to be there. She said it’s well-known that Murray comes to Lola’s every Wednesday night during the summer to hear live music.

Before the incident with Simon, she said, Murray had posed for pictures with her staff in the kitchen after enjoying a meal with friends.

“He’s a very nice, civil person,” Domitrovich said of Murray.

The police report said a sergeant responding to the scene advised Simon that “he could take out a criminal complaint for assault and battery at the Edgartown District Court.”

Simon, according to the report, told police he was uninjured and thought a disorderly conduct charge was more appropriate.

Asked if Friday if he would consider civil litigation in lieu of criminal charges, Simon said, “I could. I just don’t know where I stand. I haven’t talked to a lawyer yet, and I don’t know what my options are. I’m kind of naive on this sort of thing.”

Domitrovich, for her part, doesn’t think anyone’s civilly liable for wrongdoing.

“I was very upset about the incident,” she said. “There’s no lawsuit. This is totally frivolous, what he’s trying to do.”

Aaron Rodgers defends criticism of teammates, it’s not personal .
Aaron Rodgers laid into some of his teammates last week over what he deemed a “piss poor effort” during a training camp session. The Green Bay Packers quarterback on Monday defended his dressing down of teammates, saying it’s business, not personal. Further, as a veteran team leader, Rodgers believes it’s his duty to call it like he sees it, regardless of whether or not it results in hurt feelings. “I hope we’re not that soft,” Rodgers said Monday, via ESPN. “I hope we can hear comments or read comments and not get offended by things. It’s a professional environment; it’s not a personal environment. The things I’m saying, I don’t have some vendetta against any player.
