SEATTLE - "Deadliest Catch" Captain Sig Hansen was arrested and booked into the King County Jail early Thursday on suspicion of assault and property destruction.

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 was later arrested at a home in Shoreline and then booked into the King County Jail.
