Updated: 11 hours 13 minutes ago
SALISBURY, Conn. (Jan. 30) -- Actor Elmore "Rip" Torn has been charged with breaking into a Connecticut bank and carrying a loaded handgun while intoxicated.
Police arrested actor Rip Torn at a Connecticut bank on Friday night. Here, he speaks at a news conference in Berlin last year.
State police say the 78-year-old Salisbury resident was arrested Friday night after police found him inside the Litchfield Bancorp with a loaded revolver.
The "Men in Black" actor has been taken into custody and booked on charges including burglary and possession of firearm without a permit. He is being held on $100,000 bond and is scheduled for a Monday appearance in Bantam Superior Court.
Last year, Torn was given probation in a Connecticut drunken driving case and granted permission to enter an alcohol education program. He also has two previous drunken driving arrests in New York.
A spokesman for Torn did not immediately return phone calls Saturday.
