How far would you go to get away from spouse troubles?


A man under house arrest in Italy showed up at a police barracks asking to be put behind bars because life with his wife at home was unbearable.

 He was no longer able to cope with the forced cohabitation with his wife.


Police said in a statement:

Exasperated by the situation, he preferred to escape, spontaneously presenting himself to the Carabinieri to ask to serve his sentence behind bars.

The man had been under house arrest for drug crimes for several months and had a few years left to serve

He lived at home with his wife and family. It wasn’t going well anymore. He said, ‘Listen, my domestic life has become hell, I can’t do it anymore, I want to go to jail’.

The man was promptly arrested for violating his house arrest and judicial authorities ordered his transfer to prison.
