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.

0921_media_removed_britney
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.

People carry guns all the time.

I don't see why they are locking up this old coot. He looks harmless to me.

Law enforcement tries to discourage people from breaking into banks. I know. It's crazy...

Gotta love someone who forgoes on actually robbing a bank during business hours and waits, with plenty of beer to pass the time, for the bank to CLOSE so, instead, he can break into said bank. That's so much more fun????

Rip Torn was a very good actor... It seems he has given up on life in general.

Why Not    

This poor man is 79 yr old and needs to be certified. Years of drugs, booze and poor life style choices have pushed him over the finer edge of reason. Instead of throwing him in jail, put him in a nursing home and slap a bracelet on him so he can't walk away, same as every other dementia or Alzheimer patient.
This is not sensational. It's sad.
