A man was jailed after he took money from his bank and deposited it into his account so that it does not fall into the red.

The man of La Coruna, Spain, went to the bank to withdraw all of his money from the bank.

However, when he reached the teller, he was informed that the transaction has a fee of 5 euros ($6.20), which will leave his account in the red.

The client was furious and began screaming. He then wanted to speak to a manager and he demanded answers. When the bank manager came to speak with him the angry customer assaulted him.

The customer then decided that the bank should pay his 5 euros. He jumped over the counter and grabbed 5 euros, which was on the counter.

The man was arrested, charged and he later pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery. A judge sentenced him to two years in prison.
