Hansen issued bad checks, failed to pay thousands of dollars to a vendor
(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.
