After being arrested for breaking into a bank late Friday evening, the bank’s CEO Mark E. Macomber, reveals that Rip Torn may have a serious drinking problem.
Although Mark, who runs the Litchfield Bancorp, told TMZ that he didn’t think Rip wanted to hurt anyone or even steal any money, the bank head revealed that an intervention should be staged for the actor’s alcohol usage.
According to Macomber, Rip , who is still in custody, was found lying on the floor of the CT bank branch and didn’t not realize exactly where he was, thinking he was at his own home.
With Rip being heavily under the influence, Mark called the incident a, “serious matter,” even though all that was damaged was a shattered window, according to TMZ.
Rip 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,” TMZ reports.
Rip is known for his roles in movies such as Men in Black alongside Will Smith and Cross Creek, which scored him an Oscar nomination.
