Deadliest Catch Crabber Arrested After Allegedly Assaulting Uber Driver in Ballard

Celebrity crab-boat captain Sig Hansen was arrested after he allegedly spat on an Uber driver in Seattle and kicked and dented the driver's auto upon learning he couldn't pay cash for his ride home. According to the police report via The Seattle Times, Hansen and another rider got agitated and spit on the driver. The group's ride was canceled in the app, and they offered to pay cash, which Uber drivers are unable to accept, for the ride.

The Deadliest Catch star was booked at King County Jail and will reportedly be released on a bail of $2000. "The driver drove away and called police".

According to the report, when law enforcement arrived they noticed body fluid on the back of the headrest as well as a dent in the side of the auto. Hansen came outside a few minutes later. As Hansen told the police, he was likely buzzed because he had been celebrating Norwegian Independence Day.

Hansen then denied that any altercation occurred, telling officers, "That means we're done!"

"Nope!' the police report quote him as saying". Apparently, Sig tried to offer the driver $100 to continue the trip but the Uber employee refused as it's against company policy. The annual celebration includes a parade and various community events.

Melissa Eckstrom, now a 28-year-old attorney in Seattle, says she retains memories of her father, Hansen, sexually assaulting her in 1990 when she was about 2 years old. That case is headed to the Appeals Court.
