Police stopped him in his Toyota Land Cruiser in West Hollywood about 4:45 this morning.
They arrested a cross-dressing prostitute the actor had picked up.
Deputies made the arrest after seeing the known prostitute get into the car.
20-year-old (Ada-son Sea-O-Lee) Atisone Seiuli was taken into custody on a warrant for prostitution, but Murphy was not detained.
Deputies say the actor was not involved in any criminal activity.
Murphy's attorney says the actor stopped to help the prostitute, who seemed ``disjointed'' as he walked along Santa Monica Boulevard.
