Weird! ::: Actor Rip Torn, 78, arrested, broke into bank drunk with loaded revolver

This doesn't make much sense to me... he wasn't part of the cast of Diff'rent Strokes.

Award-winning actor Rip Torn has been arrested after police found him intoxicated and armed inside a Connecticut bank at the weekend.
Torn, 78, was being held on $100,000 bond after officers responded to an alarm at the Litchfield Bank in Salisbury, the Connecticut town where the actor lives.
He was disciovered inside the closed bank 'with a loaded revolver' and 'highly intoxicated,' according to a police report.
Torn was charged with burglary, criminal trespass and criminal mischief and weapons charges.
The actor, who won an Emmy for 'The Larry Sanders Show' in 1992, has most recently appeared in several episodes of '30 Rock' as network head Don Geiss.
He starred in the hit film 'Men in Black' and its sequel, as well as scores of other films and television shows over six decades.
He was nominated for an Oscar for 'Cross Creek' in 1983, two years before his wife, Geraldine Page, won the Best Actress Oscar.
Torn, a cousin of actress Sissy Spacek, has been arrested several times in recent years for drunken driving and received a fine, license suspension or probation.
He was also acquitted of one charge.
Here's a mugshot of his from a few years ago. It's no Nick Nolte, but almost.
