The former host of “To Catch a Predator,” Chris Hansen, was arrested on Jan. 14 in Stamford, Connecticut after he allegedly bounced two checks (larceny), notes TMZ.
The police claim Hansen bought 355 mugs, 288 t-shirts and 650 vinyl decals from a mom-and-pop shop in town for marketing events.
Hansen reportedly owed a mom-and-pop shop $12,998.05 for the items that he purchased in 2017, and allegedly gave the vendor a check that bounced.
