“To Catch a Predator” host, TV personality and journalist, Chris Hansen, did not show up to court in Shiawassee County Thursday, leading to his short arrest.

A bench warrant was issued for Hansen’s arrest for failure to appear in court, Shiawassee County Prosecuting Attorney Scott Koerner confirmed with USA Today.

Hansen was asked to present video evidence related to an October 2020 sex-trafficking sting operation with local police — where three suspects were arrested at a hotel in Owosso after allegedly attempting to have sex with minors between the ages of 13 and 15.

Hansen turned himself in Friday and was released the same day, according to USA Today.

Hansen stated in an Instagram post that his absence was a misunderstanding and the issue has been resolved.
