Rip Torn In Court Over Bank Break-In

5/25/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rip Torn just showed up to court  -- disguised as a lumberjack -- in his burglary case ... you remember, the one where he broke into a bank thinking it was his home.

Rip Torn
We got him outside the Connecticut courthouse where Torn faces burglary and gun charges.

We're hearing there could be a plea bargain, because Torn has completed an alcohol ed program -- yes, Lindsay, take note.

Rip has dodged two DUI bullets ... the famous case where he went nuts in a police station but was found not guilty, and a second DUI case that was dismissed yesterday because he successfully completed the alcohol ed course.

We're in court.

UPDATE: The case has been continued to June 4th -- and according to Rip's attorney, both sides are working towards a resolution.

Rip's attorney also claims the actor has gotten rid of his firearms and is confident rehab can help his client.

Bring back Megan Fox? Not likely, my friend. One of the cardinal rules (of life?) is "don't bite the hand that feeds".

And that's exactly what she did when she so publicly criticized Michael Bay...the director runs the shoot, not the actors! She's young, maybe this will teach her something.
