Rip Torn (a Texan) Leads the Way

Rip Torn Busted for Allegedly Breaking Into Bank | TMZ.com: "Rip Torn was arrested Friday night for allegedly breaking into a bank while drunk and armed with a loaded revolver.

State police responded to an alarm at the Litchfield Bancorp building in Salisbury, CT at 9:40 PM last night. Police say they found Torn 'with a loaded revolver' and he was 'highly intoxicated.'

Law enforcement sources tell us Torn gained access through a broken window, which they believe Torn broke himself."

So...apparently the gun wasn't the only thing that was loaded.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

Always get Rip Torn and Rip Taylor confused. Can't figure out which one I should imagine trying to drunkenly vandalize an ATM.

To further confuse, you Rip Torn was born in Taylor, Texas.

Ah, The Ripper! One of my favorite actors on and off the screen. Maybe his performance in PAYDAY was closer to the truth than we thought. And you can always google the footage of his 1969 hammer fight with Norman Mailer and make up your own mind . . .
