I lied to a police officer?

I didn't really mean to. It was a high pressure situation and I was freaking out. I have anxiety.

The whole situation would take too long to explain. But I'm going to have to talk to this officer again, and I'm going to have to tell him the truth, because the lie I told is very easy to verify. All they have to do is look at my bank records.

Update:

What should I say to the officer? How do I tell him that I lied?

    Welcome to the real world. Don't lie to cops. It's illegal and gets you into trouble.

    Just tell him that you lied, and apologise for it, then tell him the truth.

    Tell him the truth - he will respect you and appreciate the time saved.

    Bertsta's Law; say nothing. Deny everything. Never volunteer information to the cops. If they <really> want to see your bank records, they need a warrant. So if you're some small time punk they probably won't bother. If you run a corporation with Gambino in the title, maybe they will.
