Rip Torn avoids jail time for Conn. break-in


Torn reached a deal with prosecutors for breaking into the office of a Connecticut bank in January.

The 79-year-old actor was carrying a loaded gun and was drunk during the incident.

He told police he believed he was in his own house, which is up the street from the bank.

Since his arrest, Torn has reportedly undergone treatment for alcohol abuse.
