The author, Jon Krakauer, tells us that Chris made up a story, but he doesn't describe what the story was.  "Caught by immigration authorities trying to slip into the country without ID, he spent a night in custody before concocting a story that sprang him from the slammer, minus his .38-caliber handgun,"  (Krakauer, pg 36).
