Chris Hansen is off the hook for allegedly bouncing checks — which got him arrested in Connecticut — because prosecutors dropped the charges … TMZ has learned.
The former host of “To Catch a Predator” came up with the nearly $13,000 he owed to a mom-and-pop shop in Stamford, CT … according to the court. As a result, prosecutors decided to drop the whole matter.
As we’ve reported … Hansen was arrested and booked for larceny after allegedly bouncing 2 checks to the store owners.
Hansen’s attorney, Philip Russell, tells TMZ … Chris was in court Wednesday for a hearing, but he didn’t have to plead to any charges after paying his debt in full.
As for when Hansen settled the tab, we’d assume he paid up after his arrest — but when we posed that question to the court clerk we got a “no comment.”
