Paid In Full

It appears that former NBC Reporter Chris Hansen is off the hook for allegedly bouncing bad checks.

7 days ago, FTVLive told you that Hansen found himself on the other side of the jail bars after being arrested for allegedly writing a bad check to a business he owed money to.

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 and as a result, prosecutors decided to drop the whole matter.

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.
