A man under house arrest in Italy went to a police barrack and asked them to put him behind bars because life with his wife at home was unbearable, the police said Sunday.
As per reports, the 30-year-old Albanian citizen “was no longer able to cope with the forced cohabitation with his wife”, the Carabinieri 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,” they wrote.
The man had been under house arrest for drug crimes for several months and had a few years left to serve, an official Captain Francesco Giacomo told AFP.
“He lived at home with his wife and family. It wasn’t going well anymore,” Ferrante said.
“He said, ‘Listen, my domestic life has become hell, I can’t do it anymore, I want to go to jail.’
The man was immidiately arrested for violating his house arrest and judicial authorities ordered his transfer to prison.
