rip torn avoids jail time and gets 3 years probation

It's almost like someone used that flashy-thing device from Men In Black and erased Rip Torn's memory of being an accomplished, respected actor.

Today, Rip pled guilty to reckless endangerment, as well as criminal mischief, criminal endangerment, AND carrying a firearm after being arrested nearly a year ago for breaking into a Connecticut bank, while drunk and armed.

We're thinking the fact that he's 79 years old helped him dodge jail time, as he was instead given three years of probation, during which time he can't carry firearms, and he'll be randomly tested for drugs and alcohol.

Hopefully Rip won't feel TOO tempted to have a drink and pick up one of the many futuristic firearms that he'll be surrounded by on the set of Men In Black III.

And yes, they're bringing him back for MIB 3.

How do U feel about Rip Torn walking the streets? Are we safe? Or do U think bank employees should be on their guard?

    Man it's a good thing he did that cause if he was black and his accountant didn't file his taxes they would have threw his ass under the jail.

    Re: trakstar5 – Nah. Nancy Pelosi would stand up front and say 'You're censored', and then it would be business as usual. Rangel got nothing.
