Rip Torn due in court for bank break-in

LITCHFIELD, CT Torn is scheduled to appear in Litchfield Superior Court on Tuesday morning.

State police say the 79-year-old actor was so intoxicated on the night of Jan. 29 that he broke into a bank with a loaded gun thinking it was his home in Salisbury in northwestern Connecticut.

Torn went into an alcohol rehabilitation program after his arrest.

Torn had received probation last year as part of a Connecticut DUI case and also had alcohol-related arrests in New York in the past.
