Rip Torn Pleads Guilty Enters Deal After Alleged Bank Robbery
Rip Torn might not be guilty of attempted bank robbery, but he did plead guilty to reckless endangerment, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, and illegal carrying of a firearm. The Tony and Emmy Award-winning actor was arrested on Jan. 29 when he was found drunk and packing a loaded pistol inside a Connecticut bank. He said he broke into the bank thinking it was his own home. Torn received a two-and-a-half year suspended sentence and three years probation, as well as random drug and alcohol testing for his crimes.
