‘To Catch A Predator’s’ Chris Hansen Arrested For Bad Checks Also Facing Eviction

Chris Hansen once one of NBC’s brightest stars with his landmark show, ‘To Catch A Predator’, is now suffering huge financial problems. Hanson was arrested on Monday in Connecticut for writing two bad checks to a vendor he owed money to. The former host turned himself into the Stamford, CT police department after an arrest warrant was issued for felony bad checks. Hanson bought a large amount of promotional items from a company in 2017, he paid for the items with a check that bounced. The amount of the check was 13 K.

The owner told ‘NBC News’ that he and Hansen were going back and forth about how he was going to recover the money. In April of 2018, Hanson gave the owner another check, to cover the bad check, and it too bounced. Sgt Sean Scanlan of the Stamford Police department said Hanson refused to speak with the police about the bounced checks so they issued a warrant for his arrest. Hansen hosted ‘To Catch A Predator on NBC’s Dateline for several year. It was a show that worked with the police to catch online predators that were soliciting underage children on the internet for sex.


Hanson hosted various spin offs, including ‘To Catch A Thief’ and ‘To Catch an ID Thief.’ Hanson was a decorated journalist and received 8 Emmy Awards. Hanson is also facing an eviction from his Manhattan apartment, he owes his landlord 400 dollars for August and 3600 K for September, he hasn’t paid rent since August, his landlord has started the eviction process against Hansen, and said that Friday he will be escorted off the property by a sheriff if he was still there. On the check charges, Hansen could face a 5000 dollar fine and a 2 year prison term. According to ‘IMBD’ the last time Hansen worked was in 2016 on an episode of ‘Black-ish’.
