Rip Torn Arrested After Bizarre Bank Raid

Actor RIP TORN was arrested on Friday (29Jan10) night after he allegedly broke into a Connecticut bank with a loaded gun.
Police allegedly found the Men in Black star lying on the floor of the Litchfield Bancorp building clutching a loaded revolver.
Torn - real name Elmore Rual Torn - is said to have been drunk at the time of his arrest, and has been charged with a string of offences including carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief.
He is currently being held on a $100,000 (£62,500) bond and is due in court on Monday (01Feb10).
Litchfield Bancorp boss Mark E. MAComber has spoken to TMZ.com and tells the website he doesn't believe the actor was trying to steal anything from the bank, but thought he was in his own home.
Torn has previously been in trouble with the law over alcohol-related offences, including a driving under the influence (DUI) arrest in December 2008. He was handed probation and ordered to enrol in an alcohol education program.
