Chris Hansen got the Chris Hansen treatment, sort of, when Connecticut cops confronted him and then busted him … for bouncing checks.
The former host of “To Catch a Predator” was arrested Monday in Stamford for larceny. Cops say he failed to pay a local vendor nearly $ 13,000 for stuff he’d purchased in 2017 … and allegedly gave the guy the run-around with 2 bounced checks.
According to Stamford PD, Chris bought 355 mugs, 288 T-shirts and 650 vinyl decals from a mom-and-pop shop in town for marketing events he planned to attend. The owner says the goods were delivered, but Chris bailed on his $ 12,998.05 tab.
The owner says after the first check bounced, he threatened to go to cops. Chris allegedly offered to make 4 partial payments, but the owner rejected that deal.
Chris then bounced a second check, and begged for more time. The owner claims emailed Chris said he was selling his boat to come up with the cash, but a check — a good one — never came … and a warrant was issued for Chris’ arrest.
He turned himself in Monday, and was booked and released from jail.
Anna talked a little bit about her ex-hubby on her “Anna Faris is Unqualified” podcast Tuesday and revealed she and Chris were texting the morning after he asked Katherine to marry him (spoiler alert: she said yes!!!).
Anna congratulated the new couple … saying they’re “f***ing” amazing together. Not that she had to remind anyone, but Anna says there’s zero bitterness followingher divorce with Chris. Matter of fact … Anna says she reminded Chris she’s an ordained minister and also joked about planning the wedding.
She didn’t stop there … Anna also said she’d be down to have Chris and Katherine on the podcast. They’ve all been chummy for a while … no one will forget their Halloween outing.
As we reported … Chris posted a photo Monday morning with the caption, “Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!”
Anna then left a comment on that post, “I’m so happy for you both!! Congratulations!”
Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are engaged!!!
Chris posted this Monday AM … “Sweet Katherine, so happy you said yes! I’m thrilled to be marrying you. Proud to live boldly in faith with you. Here we go!”
All the signs have been there for a few months … he’s been hanging with her entire fam, including Arnold and Maria Shriver. Chris, Katherine, Maria and Patrick Schwarzenegger were all just in Mexico together.
It was a super fast romance … they met only last June, apparently through Maria. They were almost immediately inseparable, spending lots of time with Chris’ 6-year-old son Jack.
Chris and Anna Faris settled their divorce late last year. They separated in August, 2017 after 9 years of marriage.
No word on when they’re tying the knot.
So Chris is going to become part of the Kennedy klan. Maria’s mom, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, was the sister of President John F Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Ted Kennedy.
NY Jets tight end Chris Herndon — a breakout star in 2018 — pled guilty in his DUI case stemming from a June 2018 crash, TMZ Sports has learned.
As we previously reported, the 22-year-old smashed into another car on the 1-80 highway in New Jersey on June 2 after witnesses say he was speeding at more than 100 mph.
The police footage, obtained by TMZ Sports, shows Herndon’s 2018 Nissan Armada flipped on its side and badly damaged. Miraculously, both Herndon and the other driver — a 76-year-old man — escaped without any major injuries.
Herndon bombed a field sobriety test and was arrested for DUI. He claimed he only had 2 cups of wine before getting behind the wheel that night.
Now, we’ve learned Herndon’s case went before a judge on Wednesday.
Court records show Herndon entered a guilty plea — though it’s unclear if he copped to a lesser charge. We’ve reached out to court officials but so far, no one seems to have the answer.
What we do know … Herndon was sentenced to complete 12 hours of an intoxicated driver education program. Plus, his driver’s license was revoked for 90 days. He was also hit with $ 639 in fines and fees.
The former Miami Hurricanes star had a pretty solid rookie season with the Jets — catching 39 passes for more than 500 yards and 4 TDs.
As for whether the decks are clear … they are. 39-year-old Chris and Anna Faris officially got divorced 2 months ago. They share joint custody of 6-year-old Jack. As for 29-year-old Katherine, she’s never been married.
“Big Bang Theory” star Kunal Nayyar is making one big gesture … because he’s one of several people who have donated to the family of late TV news anchor and reporter ChrisBurrous.
Kunal donated $ 5,000 to Burrous’ family Sunday, the largest donation yet on the GoFundMeaccount. The page was set up to help Chris’ wife, Mai, and 9-year-old daughter, Isabella, cover funeral costs and other expenses in the wake of the popular KTLA anchor’s shocking death.
Chris was found unresponsive in a Glendale hotel Dec. 27, and police say his death is being investigated as a possible overdose.
Kunal is one of 1,330 people who have donated to the GoFundMe, which in 2 days has already raised $ 62,419 toward its $ 75k goal.
“Ink Master” star Chris Blinston has twice been accused of a serious crime … and twice now has come away unscathed from those accusations.
TMZ’s learned the battery case against Blinston has been dismissed because of insufficient evidence to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt … this according to the State Attorney for Palm Beach County, Florida.
We broke the story … Blinston’s girlfriend accused him last month of ending an argument by picking up a safe and pressing it against her chest to move her outta his way. She called cops and they arrested him for battery. He denied touching her and now prosecutors have declined to file charges.
You’ll recall Blinston’s teenage daughter accused him of choking her. He said she framed him and prosecutors eventually dropped those charges too.
Chris Brownmight be better off with cats and dogs, because he just got slapped with criminal charges over his pet monkey … TMZ has learned.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, the Los Angeles City Attorney is charging CB with two counts of having a restricted species without a permit. The crimes carry a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail.
As you’ll recall … Chris got himself a baby capuchin monkey named Fiji, and he started taking major heat after posting a video of his then-3-year-old daughter, Royalty, playing with the exotic pet. People thought the wild animal posed a danger to his kid, but Chris told everyone totake a chill pill.
Our law enforcement sources say folks notified the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, who launched an investigation.
Breezy didn’t have a permit for the monkey, so authorities got a search warrant and planned to raid CB’s home, but he voluntarily agreed to surrender the exotic pet.
