Rip Torn Arrested For Burglary

Rip, you’re getting too old for this…..

Rip’s in trouble again! Actor Elmore “Rip” Torn was arrested Friday evening after breaking into a Connecticut bank while carrying a loaded revolver, police in Connecticut say. The star has long struggled with alcohol addiction and was under the influence at the time.

When Connecticut State Police responded to The Litchfield Bancorp in Salisbury they found a broken window in the rear of the building and an intoxicated Torn walking around inside, according to The Register Citizen.

Drunken misbehavior is nothing new for 78-year-old Rip: He was convicted of DUI in 2008, pleaded guilty to being ability impaired in 2007, and was acquitted of drunk driving in 2004.

Cops say the actor has been charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass, and third-degree criminal mischief. Torn — a resident of Salisbury — is being held on $100,000 bail.
