A wanted man with an undisclosed identity in West Sussex, UK ended up giving himself up to the police. His reason behind this is that he couldn’t stand another minute in quarantine with the people he was living with.
With hopes of reportedly getting some “peace and quiet” in a 4×4 cell, the man, who was “wanted on recall to prison,” submitted himself to the Burgess Hill police station this week.
Inspector Darren Taylor of the Sussex Police shared to Twitter about the happening, “Peace and quiet! Wanted male handed himself in to the team yesterday afternoon after informing us he would rather go back to prison then have to spend more time with the people he was living with! One in custody and heading back to prison to serve some further time on his own.”
During COVID-19 lockdown, psychologists reportedly say that there is an ongoing rise in people feeling similar symptoms of continual stress that one would experience with a burnout at work. These problems are also affected sleep and concentration and the desperation for human contact.
