TUSCANY – Police say a 32-year-old Tunisian man serving time under house arrest for drug related charges, made a break for it last Tuesday, but he wasn’t looking for freedom. He was looking to escape his wife. Walid Chaabani reportedly fled from his home in Livorno, directly and intentionally, into the arms of the Carabinieri which is the national military police of Italy. Once in police custody, Chaabani requested to serve the rest of sentence behind bars.
Police said he was “tired of continuously fighting with his wife” and “asked explicitly to be put back in prison.” According to the statement released by police, “Living with his wife was particularly difficult and unbearable.”
The local court accommodated the weary man and issued an imprisonment order that same day. He was then taken by police to the district prison where he will serve out the rest of his sentence…in peace.
In June of 2013, a 19-year-old man under house arrest requested imprisonment because he was “sick of playing Xbox.”
