Rip Torn Arrives at Court in Handcuffs

2/1/2010 12:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Rip Torn was taken to court today -- in handcuffs -- to face charges stemming from his arrest this weekend.

Torn was busted after he allegedly broke into a bank in Connecticut, while carrying a loaded gun. He was charged with carrying a pistol without a permit, carrying a firearm while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree criminal mischief.

UPDATE: Rip just posted bail -- he did not enter a plea today. Rip's lawyer says the actor will most likely plead not guilty at the next hearing (February 17) and Rip is expected to enter an alcohol treatment facility as early as tomorrow.
