Exactly what the title says happened in North Carolina according to local news site. The unusual incident happened on Thursday 16th. James Verona came to RBC bank without a weapon but with note that said: “This is a bank robbery, please only give me one dollar.”; after he said that he will be sitting on the chair there waiting for police, and so he did.
Wondering what drove this 59 years old man to this desperate act? For sure it wasn't monetary reasons, but what then? The answer is really simple. Mr Verona don't have medical insurance and he has a growth of some sort on his chest, two ruptured disks and a problem with his left foot. He have no job so jail seemed as best opportunity for him to get free health care.
