    SALISBURY, Conn. – Actor Elmore "Rip" Torn has been charged with breaking into a Connecticut bank and carrying a loaded handgun while intoxicated.

    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.

    I like him, he makes me laugh. He was in Freddy Got Fingered which I thought was funny. I know most people say that movie was terrible but I liked it.

    Cases like these can be very complicated. Hopefully they will get him the help he needs and things will work out for the best. He's a good man from nearby Taylor, TX, and is a graduate of my alma mater, Texas A&M University. I wish him the best. Oh, and as always, never talk to the police.

    When I am 78 I plan to drink as much as I want, whenever I want, anywhere I want. Armed or not.

    Maybe sooner.

    What kind of security features do their doors have that a drunk 78 year old could defeat them?

    Like Tommy Lee said to Will Smith in the MIB movie, "And that's why you need to lay off the sauce son".


    When I was younger, drinking made me do a lot of silly things, but............as Will Smith also said, "Just damn!".
