    SALISBURY, Conn. (AP) — Actor Elmore “Rip” Torn has been arrested for breaking into a Salisbury bank and carrying a firearm while intoxicated.
    Connecticut state police said 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 was taken into custody and booked on numerous criminal charges, including burglary and possession of firearm without a permit.
    He was 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.

    that's sad. At 78, he might be a buzz artist. But he also might have a screw loose. Or two.

    If you can dodge bank security cameras, you can dodge a ball.
