I was all set to post some boring, wonky thing when I heard about this. So this is like the blog version of "Extra! Extra! Extra!" Can you believe this dude? He's seventy-freakin'-nine!
In case you missed it, here is a report from Entertainment Weekly:
"Actor Rip Torn, 79, was arrested Friday night on charges of burglary and criminal trespassing after officials allegedly found him carrying a loaded revolver inside a bank in Salisbury, Conn., according to the Register Citizen newspaper. A police report published on TMZ.com states that Torn used “forced entry” to get inside the bank and was “highly intoxicated” when taken into custody. The actor is being held on a $100,000 cash bond and is set to appear in court on Feb. 1. A rep for Torn did not immediately respond to requests for comment."
I've always loved this guy but I guess he decided he wasn't going to be forgotten by anyone. (The mugshot was from a previous transgression.)
