Actor Rip Torn was arrested this week after he allegedly got roaring drunk and broke into a Connecticut bank while carrying a loaded handgun. Police said the 78-year-old Torn—who had twice the legal blood-alcohol limit—apparently broke a window and entered the bank, thinking it was his home. “Torn asked why we took him out of his house,” a police report said. Torn, who has a history of alcohol problems, has checked into a Manhattan rehab clinic, his lawyer said.
