He stands accused of breaking into a bank in his hometown of Salisbury on Friday with a loaded revolver while intoxicated.
His attorney, A. Thomas Waterfall, says Torn will be able to post his $100,00 bond Monday and is expected to enter an alcohol treatment facility in New York as early as Tuesday.

Waterfall says the 78-year-old Torn, who spent the weekend in jail, doesn't have a history of violence and never brandished the gun.
This is not Torn's first tangle with the law however. 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.
Torn did not enter a plea Monday. He returns to court Feb. 17.
