It's hard for a lot of guys to admit to their wives that went to a strip club, let alone spending $1,000 on the attractions.

Jesus Mata Jr., a 21-year-old from Texas, recently received a tax refund and decided to spend it at a strip bar called Whispers in La Feria.

After he spent all the cash, he concocted a titillating tale to police about how six gunmen in two truck robbed him at gunpoint with assault weapons, TheDenverChannel.com reported.

Investigators from the Cameron County Sheriff's Department and the Harlingen Police Department tried to track down the trucks, but got suspicious when no leads emerged, Houston.CultureMap.com reported.

When the detectives again questioned Mata, he admitted making up the story to hide the fact he blew the whole $1,000 wad, NewsFix reported.

Mata was arrested and charged with filing a false report, according to KWTX-TV.

No word yet on how he will be punished . . . by his wife.
