    Default Rip Torn Arrested for Armed Bank Break-In

    Litchfield, Conn Actor Elmore "Rip" Torn will appear before a Connecticut judge again, this time to face allegations he broke into a bank with a loaded revolver while intoxicated.

    The 78-year-old Salisbury resident is scheduled to be arraigned on burglary and firearm charges Monday in Bantam Superior Court.

    State police say Torn was arrested Friday night after authorities found him inside the Litchfield Bancorp in Salisbury with a loaded revolver.

    The "Men in Black" actor was held in lieu of $100,000 bond.

    Last year, Torn was given probation in a Connecticut drunken driving case and granted permission to enter an alcohol education program. He also has two previous drunken driving arrests in New York.

    A spokesman for Torn did not return phone calls.

    Man! Poor ol' bastard. I know he's had his demons over the years, but the mugshot tells a bit of a story by itself. I heard he's had bouts of manic depression dating back to the 70's. Pretty tragic turn in his life. He's a damn good actor though. Hope he pulls himself backup.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.

    that mug shot is pretty heart breaking although I have seen one previous one of him that is pretty brutal

    even the president of the bank has been quoted as saying that the guy is troubled and needs treatment....apparently he thought he was in his own home...not the bank!

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    He is pretty well known around town as the town drunk. Apparently he thought the bank was his house. When the police arrived they found that he had taken his shoes off at the door and settled down in a chair for a nap. When the police awoke him he couldn't figure out why they were taking him out of his house.

    just saw a picture of the bank....it looks like a yellow two story colonial house with white shutters, three over three paned windows and a red house type door.

    if not for the painted litchfield bank sign on the upper door i would mistake it for a house.....not my house, but a house...wonder how far from this place Rip lived....and how he got there.
