That guy is having a time. According to E Online, "Emmy-winning actor Rip Torn was arrested Saturday for allegedly breaking into a bank in Salisbury, Conn., where he's a resident. Police described the incident as a booze-inspired bank job. In a statement, cops say they responded to an alarm at 9:40 p.m. Friday and found Torn "with a loaded revolver, and was highly intoxicated." The many charges against the 78-year-old Men in Black star include carrying a firearm while intoxicated, carrying a pistol without a permit, first-degree criminal trespass, first-degree burglary, and third-degree criminal mischief." Yes, Alex is right: he's just a drinkie. Source: E Online Digg this story!
