Odd news of the week
A Kansas man robbed a bank last week to go to jail and avoid his wife, AP reported. Lawrence Ripple, 70, told his wife following a fight Friday “he’d rather be in jail than at home.” Ripple walked to a bank in Kansas City and handed a teller a note demanding money. The teller gave him nearly $3,000, at which time Ripple took a seat in the lobby and told the security guard he was the suspect. He was arrested and taken to jail.
