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.
