Oscar-nominated and Emmy-winning actor Rip Torn was reportedly found inside the Litchfield Bankcorp building with a loaded gun and appeared “highly intoxicated.” According to police reports, Torn was found lying on the floor of the bank in a confused and disoriented state. The actor reportedly did not know he was inside a bank and thought he was in his own home.

Rip Torn has previously been arrested several times for driving while intoxicated. Torn was nominated for an Oscar for Cross Creek in 1983 and won an Emmy Award in 1992 for The Larry Sanders Show. The Men in Black star most recently appeared on several episodes of 30 Rock.

Torn is scheduled to appear in court Monday on charges of carrying a gun while intoxicated, first-degree burglary, criminal trespass and several other charges. He is currently being held in jail on $100,000 bail.

We just hope somebody gets this poor guy some help before he accidently gets himself or someone else killed.
