‘To Catch a Predator’ host Chris Hansen turns himself in, is released after missing court date


Chris Hansen, host of “To Catch a Predator,” turned himself in after a warrant was out for his arrest following a missed court date in Michigan.

According to WLNS, the TV personality was subpoenaed to be in court Thursday in Shiawassee County but failed to show up to present video evidence for a sex-trafficking case.

As part of his show “To Catch a Predator,” Hansen had assisted local authorities on a sting operation in October in which three suspects were arrested after allegedly showing up to a hotel to have sex with a minor between the ages of 13 and 15.

Hansen turned himself in on Friday and was released, Shiawassee County Prosecuting Attorney Scott Koerner told USA TODAY.

Koerner also confirmed that a bench warrant was issued for the case related to an October sting operation.

Koerner said Hansen must turn over film to the defense in the case within the next 14 days.

Hansen said on Instagram Friday that the case has been resolved.

“All matters in the Shiawasse Co predator case resolved! Justice marches on!” his post said.

On Thursday, Hansen responded to the warrant on Instagram by calling it a “miscommunication” and saying the defense lawyers from an accused predator wanted video from the sting.

“There was miscommunication about a hearing today on the issue. The matter is currently being resolved!,” the post said.

USA TODAY has made attempts to reach Hansen.
