According to Torn, the whole thing was a result of a (very) drunken misunderstanding. Torn, who also has a DUI on his record, says he was so drunk he believed the bank to be his house, breaking in during a serious bender. He says he remembers nothing of the evening.

He's now attempting to avoid jail time by working with prosecutors. Torn has already gone to rehab to deal with his substance abuse issues.
