55-year-old Bruce McConville of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada has been in a long court battle over paying spousal and child support to his ex-wife.
Last week he told the judge that he'd sold some properties for around $1.1 million. (About 750,000 in U.S. dollars.) Then he withdrew that in cash . . . and set it ON FIRE to keep it away from his ex-wife.
And his kids. The judge asked, "How does destroying over a million dollars advance your child's best interest?" But Bruce says he did it out of frustration with the divorce.
Oh, by the way, Bruce said he didn't take a video of the cash on fire, he didn't have any witnesses, and he doesn't really have any proof.
The judge told him, quote, "You understand that's hard to believe" . . . and sentenced him to 30 days in jail to, quote, "rethink" what happened to the money. He still owes the his ex $300,000 and has no also been fined $2,000-a-day that he doesn't pay his ex-wife.
