Rip Torn arrested for alleged bank break-in
by Adam Markovitz
Categories: News

Actor Rip Torn, 79, was arrested Friday night on charges of burglary and criminal trespassing after officials allegedly found him carrying a loaded revolver inside a bank in Salisbury, Conn., according to the Register Citizen newspaper. A police report published on TMZ.com states that Torn used “forced entry” to get inside the bank and was “highly intoxicated” when taken into custody. The actor is being held on a $100,000 cash bond and is set to appear in court on Feb. 1. A rep for Torn did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

In 2007, Torn paid a fine after pleading guilty to a DUI charge in North Salem, N.Y.; he was acquitted of a similar charge in 2004 when a Manhattan jury ruled that there was insufficient evidence to prove that the actor was intoxicated when he got into a minor car collision with a taxi.

Not many. Unless the bank security footage uncovers him slanderizing Jews, this will solely go down as a hilariously sad incident.

I always confuse Rip Torn with Rip Taylor. The stories are always much funnier when I picture it being Rip Taylor that they're about.

It's always disappointing when I realize which one Rip Torn is. I think it would be less of a problem if their names were switched. Rip Taylor really looks more like he'd be named Rip Torn than Rip Torn does.

Sad. I just watched a few minutes of the underrated Walter Hill movie Extreme Prejudice the other day, and Rip Torn kicks some ass in it.

NATE!

@phillipstribune (http://twitter.com/phillipstribune/status/8499958456) It's a like a sodden celebrity version of "Clue": Rip Torn, in the bank lobby, with a revolver.
