Man goes to jail to escape from wife

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KSHB) A man accused of robbing a bank on Friday in Kansas City, Kansas shocked investigators when he confessed his reason for committing the crime.

70-year-old Lawrence John Ripple apparently told authorities that he would rather go to jail than go back home to his wife.

Ripple had allegedly walked into a local bank earlier in the day and passed a note to a teller saying that he had a gun and demanding money.

Instead of running from the scene, Ripple proceeded to sit in the bank lobby, and alerted authorities that he was the perpetrator once they arrived.

"I have never heard of someone who would rather come to jail and commit a crime so they don't have to go home and be with their family, that's never happened," said Lt. Kelli Bailiff of the Wyandotte County Sheriff's Department.
