US Man Robs Bank To Avoid Living With His Wife

A 70-year-old man held up a bank in Kansas City and instead of fleeing with $3,000, he surrendered to police. His wish came true after a judge sentenced him to spend time in prison.

Following a fight, Lawrence John Ripple told his wife that he'd "rather be in jail than at home," court documents showed.

He then walked to a bank in Kansas City, handing a note to a teller demanding cash and stating that he had a gun.
But instead of making a getaway from the Bank of Labor branch with $3,000 in cash, the 70-year-old took a seat in the lobby and told a security guard that he was the suspect.

The guard then called the police, whose station is on the same block as the bank.
Ripple later told the officers who took the money from him that he could no longer bear living with his wife.

He was charged in a federal court on Tuesday following the incident on September 2.

He is now behind bars after being taken to a federal jail in Leavenworth, Kansas.The money was returned to the bank.
Court documents didn't explain the cause of Ripple's fight with his wife.

    1. The version I saw was that the man is homeless and he only robbed a dollar from the bank just to get arrested. He felt that was the only way he could get health benefits. Anyway the main thing is he wanted to end up in jail. Kind of reminds me of how Scofield of Prison Break entered prison.

    2. After serving jail term he should transfer himself to a psychiatric hostel. Na there he go tey well well.

  2. Women with wahala. D man self na case

  3. Some women can more poisnious than serpent!

  4. he should come and try out this nonsense in Nigeria. I wonder if he will live to tell the story.

  5. hmmm.... indeed, their jails seem to be so comfortable that is why they can try this nonsense

  6. Hahahaaa seriously? The wife must be a terror, for the man to rather live in prison than with her.

  7. Lol. Oyinbo people. He should try kirikiri.

  8. Inukwa akuko. Na she send you go rob bank?

  9. In nija you wil just return the woman cos if you marry anoda woman the ist one won't go ,all in the name of fighting for her marriage and children.

  10. He wouldn't want to try that in naija

  11. Life can be so beautiful wen u marry the right person, but u marry a wolf in sheep clothing then it can be very frustrating and depressing. Moreso, being in a western world whr women are like demigod and can send a man out of his own house or deprived him of his property unlike in Africa whr it is d opposite. The man's action is an intended displaced of aggression tho not good but he felt rather than assaulting or murdering a woman and get a harsh sentence while not a lesser one that will take him away for a while to clear his head and mind. I want to believe he felt rather than being on d street, he tot it would be safe in a police custody whr he would have a shelter, feeding and clothing.....God helping us with marriage issues

  12. Some women are so bad even Nigerian jail us better that home.

  13. Ok he should try it in naija the kind beaten he will receive from kuje prison gate.

  14. This one's wife has swallowed his destiny... brother ndo o
