BOOZE IN THE NEWS: Rip Torn’s probation denied following drunk break-in of bank

Rip Torn, 79-year-old Emmy winning actor, had his request for probation denied following a January, 2010 break in of a Connecticut bank. He allegedly broke into the bank after a night of drinking. He was carrying a gun and stated later that he mistook the bank for his nearby home because they looked alike.

At the time of the incident, Mr, Torn was in a court-ordered alcohol education program from a drunk driving charge which was later dismissed.

One of the charges carries a one-year prison sentence.

Perhaps the eventual sentence should include eye-testing and a new pair of glasses.
