Hollywood Actor Rip Torn Rips Shit Up, Pleads Guilty To Drunken Bank Break-In
You gotta give it to longtime Hollywood actor Rip Torn. He's still wreaking havoc like a rock star on a bender, and he's 79.
Charlie Sheen's own chaos probably deserves some therapy, but at his age we think Torn should get a lifetime achievement award for his latest antics. This guy makes Keith Richards look like Ron Paul.
And so, like a man downing a pint of single malt to the delight of the bar, Rip Torn pleaded guilty this week to reckless endangerment, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and the illegal carrying of a firearm.
The charges related to a January incident in Connecticut in which Torn broke into a bank drunk and armed with a loaded revolver.
Torn got three years of probation and must submit to drug and alcohol tests.
We know some bros down at the frat house who can help him cheat those pee tests.
Rock on, Rip.
