Though many of us have gotten pretty loaded in the past, maybe even so loaded we peed the bed and then blamed it on our girlfriends, chances are we never got sh*tcanned and ended up in bank with a loaded gun like Rip Torn. Who’s 78. The only way this story could be more awesome is if he’d tried to get away on a velociraptor.
The veteran actor Rip Torn, 78, was arrested in Connecticut on Saturday after police found him “highly intoxicated” and with a loaded revolver inside the Litchfield Bank in Salisbury, where the actor lives, Reuters reported. Mr. Torn, who has had a few run-ins with the police over drunken driving in recent years that resulted in fines, a license suspension or probation, was held on $100,000 bond. [NY Times]
I think Rip Torn, Nick Nolte, Gary Busey, and Lou Dobbs should have a show that’s exactly like The View, except all they do is get wasted and complain about different ethnic groups. The Bleary View, they could call it. And maybe every now and then, they could throw a few wild animals and/or weapons in the studio with them. I would literally kill to see that.
