Rip Torn Allegedly Ripped -- AGAIN!

12/4/2006 5:46 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rip Torn exclusive mugshotTMZ has learned that actor Rip Torn was arrested in North Salem, New York and charged with Driving While Intoxicated (DWI).

We're told Torn, who is 75-years-old, refused to cooperate with the cops and would not submit to a blood-alcohol test.

Torn, who has starred in numerous movies including "Men in Black" and "Dodgeball," was arrested after his car was involved in an accident and police were called. At the time of publication, Torn was still in police custody.

In January, 2004, Torn was arrested in New York City after crashing his car into a taxi, and charged with DWI. Even though Torn launched into an epic and vulgar rant at the police station, the actor was found not guilty. His lawyers were Judge Judy's two sons.Rip Torn: Click to watch

Rip tried to flee, but he was just a bit too tipsy to dodge, duck, dip, dive, and dodge.

Ohhhh lookie, another celebrity drunk. Is that all they do is drink? OMG, not only drink, but drive, and get off!!!!! The rest of us get arrested, jailed, pay lots of fines, mandatory driving classes, and AA meetings, and possibly get to drive again! Bunch of rich losers.

Drunk and angry but not racist and anti-semetic.
At very least he gets a "thumbs-up" for that.

Rip Torn needs to be treated like anyone else. How dare the legal system treat him different. If he was some poor man in the middle of New York City, he would be in jail.
