The famous host of "To Catch A Predator" has run afoul of the law. The host was reportedly arrested for writing bad checks.

According to Fox News:

“To Catch a Predator” host Chris Hansen has been charged with issuing bad checks and failing to pay thousands of dollars to a vendor for marketing materials.

Hansen, 59, of Shippan, Connecticut, turned himself in to police over the bounced checks on Monday and was charged with "issuing a bad check," Stamford Police told Fox News. He was released without bond and signed a PTA or a promise to appear in court, police said.

Hansen reportedly asked Peter Psichopaidas, the owner of Promotional Sales LTD, for mugs, decals and T-shirts for marketing events in 2017, the Stamford Advocate reported, citing an arrest affidavit. The goods totaled $12,998.05 and the former MSNBC host agreed to pay for the items in full before they were delivered. An employee who worked for Hansen sent a check for the items three months after they received invoices for the materials. When the check bounced, Hansen apparently apologized to Psichopaidas and said he would make a partial payment.

The business owner filed a police complaint in April 2017, after he did not receive any payment.

Hansen reportedly continued to give the person he owed money to the runaround and finally spoke to police once a warrant was issued for his arrest.
