Another year, another drunk driving arrest for Rip Torn. TMZ has learned the actor was arrested in North Salem, New York and charged with DWI.

Similarly to an incident in January, 2004 – when Torn was arrested in New York City after crashing his car into a taxi, charged with the same crime and launched into a vulgar rant that would make Michael Richards proud – Rip refused to cooperate with the cops and would not submit to a blood-alcohol test this time around.

Torn, who has starred in numerous movies including Men in Black (with Will Smith) and Dodgeball (with Vince Vaughn), was arrested after his car was involved in an accident and police were called.

His mug shot is included here. It may lack the smug smile of Mel Gibson – but safe to say Nick Nolte was proud when he saw this puppy.
