Oct. 22, 2009 at 3:42 PM

PALERMO, Italy, Oct. 22 (UPI) -- An Italian man who violated his house arrest requested jail to get away from his wife, but the judge sent him back home.

Santo Gambino, 30, who was arrested for dumping construction waste in March, was taken to court after he was caught violating his house arrest and asked to be given a jail sentence instead to escape his wife's "non-stop nagging" at home, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Thursday.

However, the judge sent Gambino, who lives outside Palermo on the island of Sicily, back home on house arrest and ordered him to "try to get along" with his wife.
