In Texas, a man faked a story about a robbery to avoid telling his wife that he spent their $1,000 tax return at a strip bar.
Jesus Mata Jr. recently received the refund and decided to spend it at the bar.
Then he realized he’d have to explain the missing money to his wife – so he made up a story to police that gunmen with assault weapons took the money.
The cops went on a wild goose chase, found no leads, and then pretty much figured out what was going.
Mata was taken into custody on a charge of filing a false report, but additional charges could be filed.
