IndyCar drivers Scott Dixon and Dario Franchitti were robbed at gunpoint at an Indianapolis Taco Bell Sunday night, and two teenagers are under arrest ... according to Indy police.

Franchitti and Dixon were at the restaurant's drive-thru -- only a few blocks from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway -- around 9:45 PM last night when cops say 2 teenage boys robbed the group.

Cops say they they tracked down the juvenile suspects about a half hour later. One of them tried to flee and had to be taken down by a canine.  

Police say both suspects were arrested and told cops where they could find the stolen property.

Sig Hansen Arrested for Assault Allegedly Spit on Driver

5/18/2017 12:39 PM PDT

3:55 PM PT -- Hansen tells us, "I am terribly sorry for my behavior and am very embarrassed by it. I owe a bunch of people apologies, first and foremost to our Uber driver, who was just trying to get us home safely. I hope I can make that apology in person. I have no excuse, and accept responsibility for my actions. I made a boneheaded move last night, and I am sorry.""Deadliest Catch" captain Sig Hansen's been hauled off to the brig and is facing charges of assault and property destruction after a spat with an Uber driver ... TMZ has learned.

Hansen got into it with the driver early Thursday morning in the Seattle area. According to the police report ... the app canceled his ride, even though Sig was already in the car with his family. The Hansens say they offered to pay the driver $100 to complete the trip, but he refused, saying it was against Uber rules.

Hansen got mad and allegedly spit on the driver's head and the back of the driver's seat, then got out of the car and kicked it. The driver left and called cops. When officers arrived they saw several drops of fresh-looking spit on the back of the driver's headrest and a dent in the car.

When they went to Hansen's home ... cops say he was "obviously intoxicated," and told them he was celebrating Norwegian Independence Day. Cops say Sig initially denied any wrongdoing, and tried to walk back inside his home.

Officers stopped him, and put him in cuffs. Sig offered to pay any damage to the car's driver, but denied spitting. He was booked into King County Jail, and will be released on $2,000 bail.

Sig is also screwed with Uber, which tells us, “Violence will not be tolerated on the Uber app. We have been in contact with our driver partner, and the rider no longer has access to the app."

Breaking News

Blac Youngsta turned himself in to cops investigating a shootout that targeted Young Dolph.

Youngsta and 2 other men surrendered Tuesday in Charlotte after warrants were issued for their arrest. The shooting went down back in February as Dolph was riding to his concert. More than 100 rounds were blasted into his SUV. No one was injured, most likely because the vehicle was heavily armored.

Young Dolph told us back in March ... he thought Youngsta was targeting him in a jealous rage. He also said the $300k he dropped to bulletproof his SUV was the best money he'd ever spent.

Can't argue with him on that one.

Kendrick Lamar got pulled over in Bev Hills Friday afternoon, but it won't ruin his weekend.

Our photog spotted Kendrick in the driver's seat of a black G-Wagon that happened to have just been pulled over by BHPD. It's clear the superstar was humble, and did NOT play the "don't you know who I am" card.

We know this because the officer called in Kendrick's info to dispatch -- you can hear it on the radio.

In the end though ... he drove off without a dreaded yellow slip of paper. The cop let him off with a warning. While Kendrick was tight-lipped about why he was stopped ... the cop clued us in.

It's good to be the Kendrick. For sooo many reasons.

When Roksana got out of the car to exchange information with the other driver, someone (presumably an accomplice) rushed into the Maserati and bolted with the vehicle. 

Fortunately, Roksana was not hurt during the incident -- but still, that SUCKS! 

Officials tell TMZ Sports there have been 6 other "bump and run" style car thefts in the past week and there's strong reason to believe they're related.

Breaking News

Here's the best example of keeping it real we've ever seen ... Bears rookie -- the 2nd pick in the Draft -- Mitch Trubisky pushing his grandma's '97 Toyota Camry to his first pro football camp.

Before we go any further, Trubisky is rich -- with the #2 pick projected to have a contract valued around the $30 million ... so he definitely doesn't HAVE to push granny's ride to practice.

So, why's he doing it? Mitch is keeping a promise to Bears GM Ryan Pace, who asked the new QB to drive his "beat-up" car to his first practice.

Kid's a man of his word ... are you paying attention, Toyota?

EXCLUSIVE

Jason Derulo threw a tantrum and vandalized a limo with shards of broken champagne glasses ... according to the limo company suing him for almost $10k -- but the singer's associates say it wasn't him.

Lonnie Reynolds of American Limo Services tells TMZ ... one of his Sprinter vans picked up Jason and a group of friends in March to take him to his O.C. club gig. Everything was cool until they got back to Jason's L.A. crib at the end of the night.

Lonnie claims Jason demanded the driver pull right up to his front door, but the driver refused ... fearing he'd take out some trees. He claims Jason and crew got pissed, and according to the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- they used broken champagne flutes to stab seats, scratch windows ... and punched the stereo system.

However, sources connected to Jason deny he had anything to do with the mayhem. In fact, they tell us he wasn't even in the van that night.

Lonnie's company is only suing Derulo -- none of his friends -- for the total damage ... $9,490.

Jada Pinkett Smith made a camera guy break into a sweat when she accused him of dinging her really expensive whip, which could cost him hundreds ... maybe even thousands!

Jada was leaving lunch at E. Baldi in Bev Hills Wednesday when the pap, not a TMZ photog, tried to snap a pic while squeezing between Jada's black Rolls-Royce and a van. He wasn't successful.

Jada saw him get a little too close for comfort, then did an inspection. You gotta hear the guy try to get out of paying. It's hilarious, and we'll say this ... Jada's got a heart of gold.

50 Cent just taught a lesson to anyone who's thinking of getting rich off a celeb's back ... or face.

Lesson learned by an auto detailing company that dared to plaster Fiddy's pics on its online ads hawking rims without his permission.

We've learned Phenomenal Vinyl, Rim Source Motorsports has just plunked down some cash in return for getting out from under the lawsuit 50 filed.

As for how much money ... part of the deal is that no one would talk, however, our sources say money did indeed change hands.

We broke the story ... 50 prohibited the company from posting any images of him. Not only did the company post pics, they even tagged him on Instagram. Audacious, and kinda dumb.
