Rip Torn pleads not guilty

"The actor defends himself, claiming he was too drunk to tell breaking into a bank from arriving at his home. "

Funny. That is the same defense I used when I was accused of breaking into the Provi-Soir at 3:00 a.m. and rolling around in the Doritos aisle.

It could happen.

To be fair, I have seen a picture of this Bank. It looks exactly like a small clapboard house. So it's not as far fetched as you might think. Yes he was drunk as a a skunk but it was hardly a modern looking bank either. He's old and a drunk leave him be!

That's the kindest defense of an old drunk I have ever read.

Poor Rip, living in a small clapboard house.

And at his age.

Very sad.
