Rip TornCharges filed against '30 Rock' actor Rip Torn stemming from a January burglary bust have been dropped, RadarOnline reports. The 79-year-old actor has made a name for himself in Hollywood over the course of his 54-year career with roles in a number of hit films, including the 'Men in Black' series.

Torn was arrested on January 29 in Salisbury, CT, after allegedly breaking into a Lichfield Bancorp building while drunk and carrying a loaded weapon.

Torn's attorney, A. Thomas Waterfall, has petitioned for the actor to undergo accelerated rehabilitation, consisting of alcohol education classes. Under the conditions of this program, charges against Torn, a first-time offender, could be dropped following a probation period.
