Chris Hansen, host of “To Catch a Predator,” has a warrant out for his arrest after missing a court date in Michigan, but he said Friday on social media that it has been resolved.
The TV personality was subpoenaed to be in court Thursday in Shiawassee County, but failed to return discovery materials related to a sex trafficking case, WLNS reported.
Shiawassee County Prosecuting Attorney Scott Koerner confirmed to NBC 25 that a bench warrant was issued for the case related to an October sting operation.
The case involved three suspects who were arrested after allegedly showing up to a hotel to have sex with a minor between the ages of 13 to 15, but they were unknowingly speaking with an officer online, WLNS reported.
Hansen said on Instagram that the case has been resolved.
“All matters in the Shiawasse Co predator case resolved! Justice marches on!” Friday’s post said.
USA TODAY has reached out to representatives for Hansen and the prosecutor for more information.

On Thursday, Hansen responded to the warrant on Instagram by calling it a “miscommunication” and saying the defense lawyers from an accused predator wanted video from the sting.
“There was miscommunication about a hearing today on the issue. The matter is currently being resolved!,” the post said.
