Caught With His Legal Briefs Down

Here at the ex-law offices, I don't often comment upon ongoing litigation because it's typically pretty boring stuff. Rarely were the cases I worked on ever wrapped up neatly in 44 minutes of drama like they were on tv.

But it is being reported that Rip Torn has requested a trial for his Driving While Intoxicated charge stemming from an accident in December when the Ol' Ripster hit a tractor trailer.

While I never prosecuted cases (I fight against The Man not for him), it doesn't look like this case would be that tough to win.

"Your honor, I'd like to introduce Exhibit A. This is a photograph taken of the Defendant after the incident. Prosecution rests."

If a picture is worth a thousand words, those words are all synonyms for "fucked up."

If your name was Rip Torn, wouldn't you be hitting the bottle from time to time?

I'm glad Rip Torn lives up to my expectations for him.

I was very surprised to learn that "Rip" is a family name that a lot of the boys have. It's not just hobby of his.

He looks almost as good as Nick Nolte did in his mug shot.
