Rip Torn rehab after a bizarre arrest.Â Actor Rip Torn was arrested after being found, intoxicated, with a loaded weapon, inside a bank.Â Of course, at the time Rip Torn was arrested, he was under the influence of alcohol.Â Sadly, this has become a very common theme in many of Rip Torn’s latest headlines.
The actor starred in movies such as Men in Black, and has had trouble the last few years because he has either been convicted or suspected of drunk driving.
So now, after getting arrested after his attempted bank robbery, the actor will head to rehab.Â He is 78 years old, so it will beÂ interesting to see if rehab will do him any good.
The actor was disoriented at the time of his arrest. He maintained that he thought he was in his home, and he did not brandish his weapon.Â Because he did not appear to be any threat, it seems as if some sort of substance abuse intervention would be the best for him.
Stars do crazy things.Â I would be interested to see if someone else in the same situation would be given the same punishment.Â After all…how many times have you heard of someone getting arrested, drunk, inside a bank, with a loaded gun….and getting off with a stint in rehab?
