Man robs bank and waits for cops because he’d ‘rather be in jail’ than at home with his wife

Gents, this is highly inadvisable, but a Kansas City man has figured out ONE foolproof way to get out of an argument with the missus.

Ostensibly because he was tired of arguing with his wife, 70-year-old Lawrence John Ripple walked into a bank, wrote a note in front of his wife demanding cash and claiming he had a gun, then proceeded to present it to a bank teller, the New York Post reported.

According to court documents he took the money handed over by the teller and went to sit in the lobby, telling a guard that he was the guy he “was looking for.”

When officers arrived shortly after and arrested Ripple, he told them he would “rather be in jail than at home.”

Argument over.

On Tuesday, Ripple was charged with bank robbery.
