British Fugitive Turns Himself In Rather Than Spend Any More Time With His Family During Lockdown



An unidentified man from Sussex, England, who had a warrant out for his arrest for parole violation, turned himself into police rather than spend another day locked down at home with his family. Police said the man just wanted to get some peace and quiet. Being cooped up during the pandemic has led many to yearn for some space from the people they share homes with, which is why the fugitive prefers jail to lockdown. “A prolonged winter, working at night, and homeschooling during the day makes me sympathize with the man,” said one Twitter user. Studies have shown that almost 25% of people in the UK have argued with family and friends during the COVID-19 lockdown.
