Rip Torn a New One for New DUI

1/6/2009 2:09 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rip Torn -- who gave us this absolute classic mugshot (left) a couple years back -- got pinched for yet another alleged DUI.

Cops say 77-year-old Rip was driving down Route 44 in Connecticut in his Subaru with an Xmas tree on top -- only problem was, he was in the breakdown lane, so they pulled him over. Popo says he failed part of a field sobriety test and refused to take a Breathalyzer test.

Torn pleaded not guilty yesterday in court to illegal operation of a motor vehicle while under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane.

This is his third DUI in the last five years.

If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a DUI. From the Patches O'Houlihan instructional video.

Definitely some jail time, a couple of YEARS suspension of license, community service and a fine. Oh yeah, and REHAB, yes, yes, yes.

I have seen Rip get rip-roaring drunk dozens of times at the annual Christmas party he has with his wife actress Amy Wright.

It's about time he went to rehab. But he won't. He's a stubborn old coot.

Rip Torn is the best. What the hell is rehab going to do for a 77 year old? He should loses his license though. He can take a cab when he's ripped.
