BANZAI7 NEWS--Actor Rip Torn was released on bail on Monday and was headed for rehab after police said they found him drunk and armed with a loaded gun in a closed Connecticut bank last week.
Torn's lawyer said the actor, whose most recent role has been as a network TV boss on NBC's comedy "30 Rock", was disoriented and believed he was at home at the time of his arrest. He was fond on Friday inside a bank in his home town of Salisbury, Connecticut.
"He will enter rehab on Tuesday," lawyer A. Thomas Waterfall (yes, Waterfall) said. "Mr Torn believed he was in his home and was getting ready for a role play game with his wife who likes to dress up as a naughty bank teller." Waterfall told Reuters. "Based upon that belief he would not have the necessary intent to commit a crime."
