Police arrested 26-year-old Maxine Hansen, who previously arrested in the precinct for allegedly drugging a man and stealing from him and reportedly broadcasting a drug-fueled party on a live Facebook video, for allegedly skipping out on cab fare last Saturday night.

After a taxi driver flagged down officers because a customer wouldn’t pay the fare, Hansen, a self-proclaimed “inheritance baby,” reportedly told police that she did not have the means to pay for the ride after officers gave her multiple opportunities to do so. No further information was available about where specifically the incident took place.

Hansen was most recently arrested in the precinct when she and two friends allegedly drugged a man in his sister’s apartment and reportedly stole laptops, credit cards and clothing. Hansen also appeared in a number of tabloids at the end of 2016 after the arrest related to the Facebook live video, which reportedly showed multiple BB guns in a Gramercy Park Hotel room, and police reportedly found heroin, methamphetamines and other drugs when Hansen and three other people were arrested.

Hansen was charged with theft of services inside the precinct around 9:30 p.m. Her attorney could not be reached for comment before T&V’s press time.

A woman who was arrested last year in the Gramercy Park Hotel for broadcasting a raucous party over Facebook live is in trouble again after she was charged with stealing from a man in an apartment on East 28th Street after he was allegedly drugged.

Maxine Hansen, 26, along with 33-year-old Sonja Monness and 31-year-old Morgan Romano, allegedly stole a number of items from the man while the four were inside the apartment of the victim’s sister on November 17.

According to the district attorney’s office, Hansen allegedly handed the victim a drink, after which he lost consciousness. Police said that when he woke up, he noticed that an iPhone, three MacBooks, a Microsoft laptop, three credit cards, three Louis Vuitton bags and two pairs of shoes valued at $22,500 had been taken from the apartment without permission.

Hansen appeared in tabloids multiple times last November and December after her arrest related to the Facebook live video, which showed multiple BB guns in the Gramercy Park Hotel room. Police said they found heroin, methamphetamines and other drugs at the party, along with six BB guns, and three other people were arrested.
