Very sad...he is a good man.
I don't think he ever got over his wife's passing (who was an excellent human).
I hope he finds a purpose......and is well.

I was watching one of those stupid criminal shows when they showed a clip of Rip drunk at a police station being all beligerent talking about do you know who I am? If this wasn't so pathetic, it would kind of be funny. This guy needs serious help before he kills himself or worse kills someone else in one of his drunken stupers.

How sad. It looks like Torn is in need of Dr. Drew and celebrity rehab. Hopefully the judge will give him the rehab option instead of jail time.

Could Dr. Conrad Murray have other charges put on him for not calling 911 when he found Michael not breathing, since he waited 45 min before calling 911, he might have been saved if 911 was called sooner.

I think Rip was abducted and traumatized during an alien abduction. Sounds like he is sufferring from the side effects of an alien anal probe. He needs Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones to rescue him, and Spielberg to write the script

He sounds more than drunk. He sounds mentally ill. I hope he gets the help he needs. Of course, if he was actually trying to rob the bank, I also hope he gets the punishment he deserves.
