(KTVI) – A Texas man takes extreme measures to party with his friends.  He wanted to get out of the house so badly, he staged his own kidnapping.

Police say Regelio Andaverde was with his wife at home when two masked men barged into their house carrying guns.

The man forced him from his home and his hysterical wife called police in a panic. Officers began searching for him, even using a helicopter.  Hours later, he causally returned home and said the kidnappers showed him mercy and set him free.

But he later fessed up to investigators saying he wanted to party with his friends.  He now faces criminal charges and a very angry wife.
