According to the Seattle Police Department, an Uber driver picked Hansen and two other passengers up in Ballard after 2 a.m.

The group asked to pay cash. When the driver told them they couldn’t because that’s not how the app works, Hansen allegedly got out of the car and kicked the rear of the vehicle.

He also allegedly spat on the Uber driver.

The driver told officers Hansen and the other passengers appeared “intoxicated.”

Hansen is in the midst of a separate allegation from his estranged daughter that he sexually abused her when she was a toddler. That case is headed to the Appeals Court.
