Rip Torn Receives Probation for Connecticut DUI

Actor Rip Torn was sentenced to probation after pleading not guilty to a charge of driving under the influence in Connecticut. Torn was arrested on December 14, 2008 after police spotted him driving in the break-down lane of a highway in Salisbury. Police reportedly had been alerted to his impaired condition by patrons of the White Hart Inn, where he was seen stumbling to his car.

The judge approved Torn’s admittance to an alcohol education program and required the 78-year old to undergo a driver’s test.

Torn is an Emmy winner and Academy Award nominee who appears on the NBC show ’30 Rock’. He has two previous DUI offenses. He paid a fine and lost his license for an arrest in April 2007, and was acquitted following a 2004 arrest.
