| Filed under: Super SeniorsLegal Matters


Actor Rip Torn was arrested on Friday night in Salisbury, CT for reportedly drunkenly breaking into a bank!

With a fully loaded revolver!

Smart guy.

The Man Who Fell to Earth actor broke into the Litchfield Bancorp building and was promptly caught by state police who noticed that Torn was "highly intoxicated" at the time of his arrest.

Torn is currently being held on $100k bond at North Canaan and has been charged with:

- First-degree burglary
- First-degree criminal trespass
- Carrying a pistol without a permit
- Carrying a firearm while intoxicated
- Third-degree criminal mischief

How did he not realize banks have silent alarms????

    Come on, he's 79. Maybe it's time for the family or friends to put their wings around him a little bit and have him assessed for dementia, alzheimers, medication reaction or simple nutritional deficiency. When seniors with a history of functional professional success start doing things that are out of whack, it's time to get a physician involved. I love Rip Torn's body of work. It's plain to see that he needs someone who cares to step in and direct him with a bit of help.

    and after breaking into the bank, a closed bank, what did he think, or officials think he was going to do? steal a bunch of calendars???? deposit slips???? not like they leave money laying around…

    Poor old son of a bitch. I remember that he had a previous DUI within the past few years too. I was recently working on a paper about the Civil Rights Movement and was surprised to find that Rip Torn's name kept coming up over and over as being very involved with the movement in the 60's which I was not aware of previously.

    You'd think he could just make them forget with his flashy thing.

    Re: @v@ – Nice thought but it's a little too late for that now. This guy is going to go to jail for a while. Those are some serious charges, not some pansy slap on the wrist DUI. He could have some form of demetia at his age, but he's been a major drunk forever. All the alcohol over the years has finally scrambled and pickled his brains enough that he has done something this unbelievably and incredibly stupid.

    He was arrested on Cape Cod a few years ago in the town I lived in too while filming a movie. It didn't make national news, and I've always wondered why.

    Perez, the man has been in almost 200 films since 1956 and you pick one from 1977???? That none of your readers will know b/c they weren't born yet? Don't get me wrong, I loved the movie and David Bowie was in it, but c'mon, that was the only one you could think of? I am probably the only reader who has heard of it!

    he got arrested again? He needs to retire and move to Florida. But with attempted robbery under his belt I say that is out of the question.

    So he strapped on a six-shooter, and busted into the town bank in the dark of night to 'make a withdrawal.' Is that such a big deal? Who hasn't done that after a few too many pints? Besides, that's just how they did it when he was a kid (assuming the stagecoach wasn't due to pass by for a few days.)

    I can't believe that it's actually possible to be uglier than Danny Bonaduce but this looks just like him only uglier.

    Re: ddddoyle@yahoo.ca – he and danny should be best buds!

    I thought that was Danny Bonaduce!!!!!

    Re: Genghis Khan – Yup. A judge will take his age, mental condition and everything else into consideration with his/her decision, which might entail the standard celeb drying out program and months of volunteer work along with some (or no) jail time, and maybe even a fine on top of it. That should fix his extracurricular activities for a while if nothing else.

    Sad. He has probably been a lost soul since his wife, the great actress Geraldine Page, died. They were devouted to each other. I imagine he is lonely and very unhappy. I am sympathetic.

    Tragic really. As the bank manager said, I hope he will get an intervention. He need to be saved from himself.

    The Man Who Fell To Earth?! Where the hell did you dig that up? Wikipedia?? You have never seen one frame of that movie.

    It appears to me that most of Hollywood crowd now days are a bunch of drunks or on some type of drug. Look at Burt Reynolds he made a big deal out of going into rehap but only lasted a couple of days, L.L. is another one and the list just seems to go on & on. What is up with these people anyway??????
