Rip Torn After Arraignment - We Don't Understand

2/1/2010 3:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rip Torn was talkative after his arraignment today on 5 criminal charges -- problem is ... it wasn't English.

Rip Torn: Click to watch
Torn shouted "Pardon" and "Con permiso" at reporters as he hoofed it to his car after posting $100,000 bail. Torn was busted this weekend after he allegedly broke into a bank in Connecticut, while carrying a loaded gun in an intoxicated state -- and we're not talkin' Connecticut.

He'll be back in court February 17 -- where he'll likely plead not guilty ... according to his lawyer.

"Con permiso" means pardon in spanish, TMZ. At least he was polite, in both languages.

NOT GUILTY!!??? They got him on video, plenty of witnesses and he pleads "not guilty"??

Cut a deal with him....if he wants to plead "not guilty"....then make it double or nothing on the prison term if this case has to go to trial and he is convicted!!!

Stop wasting tax money!! Do your crime, do your time......dumbass.

Poor guy. He seems to have Alzheimer's on top of his alcohol problem.

Just put him in a safe home instead of prison. Isn't there anyone who can take care of him at age 78?

If anyone who reads the above doesn't think we should give mental tests in order to VOTE, I give up. If this THING isn't SICK I don't know who is! No wonder this country is in such bad shape with SICKOS like this.

Whether it is dementia or some kind of alcohol induced psychosis - the guy needs help. Hopefully, rehab will do him good. I just hope Drew Pinsky keeps his perverse mitts off.
