In the early days of Twitter, To Catch A Predator was one of the must-see shows to not only watch and live tweet. Chris Hansen, the former host of the show got into a little bit of trouble earlier this week when he was arrested for bouncing checks!

The former host was booked Monday in Stamford, CT for larceny. Police say that Hansen, 59, failed to pay a local vendor nearly $13,000 for items he had purchased in 2017. However, he gave the vendor two bounced checks, hence him getting the “Chris Hansen” treatment.

Hansen according to Stamford PD bought 355 mugs, 288 t-shirts, and 650 vinyl decals from a mom-and-pop shop in the area for marketing events that he had planned to attend. The owner says the goods were given to Hansen but that he skipped on properly paying $12,998.05. Yes, the five cents means something, it’s principality!

Even worse? Chris attempted to treat the vendor like one does Sprint with installment payments but the vendor wasn’t budging. And since there wasn’t a resolution between the two … Chris had a warrant out for his arrest.

He was booked and summarily released from jail soon after.
