Arrest warrant out for TV star Chris Hansen

Local News

SHIAWASSEE COUNTY, Mich. (WLNS) — After a failure to respond to a subpoena, 35th District Court Judge Matthew Stewart has issued a warrant for the arrest of TV and internet star Chris Hansen.

The warrant for Hansen comes after the “To Catch a Predator” host had failed to return discovery materials to one of the attorneys of the individuals charged in a sex trafficking case in Shiawassee County.

That case involved a sting operation in which three people were arrested after showing up to a hotel to allegedly have sex with a minor between the ages of 13 to 15. All of the suspects were unknowingly speaking with an officer online.

<<<CORRECTION: A previous version of this story was written and said the three people arrested in the Shiawassee sting operation were women. It was not known whether they were women or not. We regret this error, and the story has been corrected.
