Hope You Had a Better Weekend Than Rip Torn

I hope all of you had a better weekend than actor Rip Torn, I know I did.
Actor Rip Torn, who has had a recurring role in the NBC hit "30 Rock," 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 state police responded to an alarm at the Litchfield Bank in Salisbury, the Connecticut town where the actor lives, and found him inside the closed bank "with a loaded revolver" and "highly intoxicated," according to a police report issued on Saturday.
I always enjoyed Torn as an actor, but when someone screws up in a funny way you've got to laugh.

Separately, how does an elderly drunk break into a locked bank? Or was he in the restroom passed out when they closed? Preparing for a role in Oceans Nineteen? These are questions that need answering.
