Man chooses jail time over living with his wife

Posted: Updated:

Instead of filing for divorce, a man says he would rather be behind bars than with his wife.

Police in Kansas say a 70-year-old man robbed a bank, and told police he did it because he would rather be in jail than live with his wife.

When officers arrived, the man was waiting for them in the lobby of the bank with the cash he'd stolen.

According to his wife, the argument started over a broken dryer.

If he's found guilty, he could get his wish of not returning home for up to 20 years.
