STAMFORD — Shippan resident and “To Catch a Predator” host Chris Hansen has been accused of bouncing checks and failing to pay for $13,000 worth of marketing materials he received from a local vendor. Hansen, 59, was charged Monday with issuing a bad check and released after signing a written promise to appear in court. Hansen did not immediately return a call Tuesday for comment. According to a four-page arrest affidavit, Hansen asked Peter Psichopaidas, owner of Promotional Sales Limited of Summer Street, for 355 ceramic The total amount due was $12,998.05, and Psichopaidas said Hansen agreed to pay the entire bill before delivery, police said. Three months after receiving invoices for the goods in September 2017, a person working for Hansen sent a Hansen News LLC check for the entire amount, police said.
Do it. Now is the time to do your best, “Why don’t you have a seat” joke. Today is the day to get it outta your system. We’ve all been waiting for the day Chris Hansen got arrested and that day has arrived. I really hope the police officers who arrested Hansen were wearing body cams and that one of them dropped a, “Why don’t you have a seat, Chris” on him. One of those police officers wanted to say it and let’s hope they did. That would be the greatest clip in the history of the world. Chris Hansen got arrested for bouncing checks at a place called Promotional Sales Limited of Summer Street. What the fuck is that you ask?

Here’s what Hansen was buying
According to a four-page arrest affidavit, Hansen asked Peter Psichopaidas, owner of Promotional Sales Limited of Summer Street, for 355 ceramic mugs, 288 T-shirts and 650 vinyl decals. Hansen planned to use them at marketing events, the affidavit said.
Weird. What a weird way to get popped for bouncing checks. $13,000 on ceramic mugs and t shirts and stickers presumably with his face on them.
I gotta be honest, I was thrilled when I read that Chris Hansen got arrested for bouncing checks. Well I wasn’t thrilled that he got arrested but I was thrilled about what he got arrested for. It would’ve been a REAL bummer if he had gotten arrested for trying to elicit sex from a minor over the internet. I don’t want to live in a world where the guy who dunked on so many sexual predators is a sexual predator himself. Luckily we don’t live in that world. The guy who dunked on so many sexual predators just sucks at managing his finances.
