A Kansas man accused of robbing a bank told cops that he’d rather be in prison than live with his wife.

70-year-old Lawrence John Ripple had handed a note to a bank teller in Kansas City this past Friday. It said he had a gun and demanded cash. He took the money and went and sat in the lobby where he told a guard he was the “guy he was looking for.”

Cops arrived very quickly.

According to the arrest affidavit, Mr. Ripple had been arguing with his wife earlier that day, and told authorities that he wrote the note in front of her, telling her he would “rather be in jail than at home.”

He was charged with bank robbery.
