Man robs United States bank to 'get away from his wife'

Man robs United States bank to 'get away from his wife'

Well, that's a new way to solve a marital dispute: a Kansas City man was so determined to avoid his wife that he robbed a bank and intentionally allowed himself to get caught.

The teller handed almost $3,000 to Ripple, who then sat down in the bank's lobby and admitted to a security guard, "I'm the guy you're looking for", the paper said.

He faces up to 20-years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000.

According to court documents, Ripple entered the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money and saying that he had a gun.

Playing his first event in the Middle East, Johnson started the final round in the last group and on the back of a 64 on Saturday. Kaymer led on his own for two holes before dropping three shots in a five-hole stretch around the turn.

Ripple walked into a local bank passed a note to a teller.

An FBI agent wrote in the affidavit that Ripple had earlier been arguing with his wife and that he 'no longer wanted to be in that situation'.

And he still can't avoid his wife - she accompanied him to his arraignment on Monday.

When police officers arrived, Ripple said he was the culprit and was taken into custody.

Not necessarily understood is if the husband had alternative circumstances to resort to than rather than stay with his wife?
