UPDATED 1/17/18, 4:15 p.m. EST: TMZ now reports Hansen is being evicted from his New York City apartment on Friday, Jan. 18, as ordered by a judge last week. Court documents say Hansen's last rent check came in August and was $400 less than the necessary amount. He allegedly "stopped sending checks altogether after that" and now owes his landlord $3,600 for September rent and the remaining $400 from August.

As reported by TMZ, Hansen was ambushed by a warrant from Connecticut police over an unpaid debt to a local coffee shop. According to the Stamford, Connecticut authorities, Hansen was taken into custody for allegedly writing multiple bad checks in 2017 to the small business owners. And if the fact people still write checks isn’t surprising enough, it should be noted that Hansen amassed a tab for close to $13,000 at said business, for which he has consistently deferred payment.
Stamford police state that Hansen ordered 355 mugs, 288 T-shirts, and 650 vinyl decals from the business for a total that amounted to $12,998.05. Hansen allegedly wrote a check for the items which bounced. He then offered to pay the debt in four installments but the store owners refuse. This led to Hansen writing another check that again was no good, pleading with the owners to give him more time to accumulate the funds. Yet, after this, Hansen stopped replying to phone calls and emails forcing the business to alert the police leading to a warrant being issued for his arrest.
Hansen has since been released after turning himself in upon notification of the warrant.
