Elmore "Rip" Torn has been charged with breaking into a Connecticut bank and carrying a loaded handgun while intoxicated.

State police say the 78-year-old actor was arrested on Friday night after police found him inside the Litchfield Bancorp with a loaded revolver.

The Men In Black star has been taken into custody and charged with burglary and possession of firearm without a permit.

He is being held on 100,000 dollar (£62,500) bond and is scheduled for an appearance in Bantam Superior Court.

Last year, Torn was given probation in a Connecticut drunken driving case and granted permission to enter an alcohol education programme.

He also has two previous drink-driving arrests in New York.

A spokesman for Torn did not immediately return phone calls.
