Rip Torn Turns Armed Bank Robber

Connecticut state police responded to a tripped alarm at a Salisbury bank at 9:40pm last night. Upon entering the building, police found actor Rip Torn (Men in Black, RoboCop 3) with a revolver and highly intoxicated.

Law enforcements believe that Torn gained access to the bank through a broken window, which more than likely the actor likely broke himself.

Torn was arrested and taken to jail in North Canaan, where is he held on $100,000 bond. He is charged with first degree burglary, first degree criminal trespass, third degree criminal mischief, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, and carrying a pistol without a permit.

He is set to appear in court on February 1st.

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.
