Rip gets Torn up
Rip Torn was arrested last night after he allegedly broke into a Connecticut bank armed with a loaded handgun, and taking a nap.
From the NY Post (on a previous encounter):
He was busted last in December 2008 for alleged DWI -- his third driving in five years.
Troopers saw him driving his Subaru -- with a Christmas tree strapped to the top -- in the emergency lane.
When confronted by the cops, he went on an expletive-laden tirade and refused to take a Breathalyzer test before failing a field-sobriety test, officials said.
During that incident -- which was filmed by a camera on the arresting trooper's rear-view mirror -- Torn allegedly told the trooper he was a police officer too, according to published reports.
Torn got probation for that incident.
Didn't he strike Norman Mailer in the head with a hammer? or was that a movie?
Is this news, probably not? Am I bored? kinda.
