State police say Torn was arrested Friday night after authorities found him inside the Litchfield Bancorp in Salisbury with a loaded revolver.

The "Men in Black" actor was held in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Last year, Torn was given probation in a Connecticut drunken driving case and granted permission to enter an alcohol education program. He also has two previous drunken driving arrests in New York.

A spokesman for Torn did not return phone calls.
