Deadliest Catch Star Jake Harris Arrested For DUI
Deadliest Catch fans have seen the crab fisherman go through addiction issues. Sadly, they are seeing the struggle again, as the late Captain Phil’s youngest son is going through a major hiccup. According to TMZ, Jake Harris was “busted again for DUI.” This happened in Washington. Moreover, it happened this last week.
The news publication spoke to a Washington State Patrol spokesperson for the latest information. According to that person, Jake was arrested for a DUI near Mount Vernon, Washington. Harris was driving a Dodge Journey. He was speeding, going 86 MPH. He was driving in a 70 MPH zone.
Although the police tried to stop him, he did not pull his vehicle to the side. Instead, he drove an additional three miles to “stop in a safe location.” At the traffic stop, the offices discovered that Jake’s license was revoked. He should not have been driving.
In addition, if he had a valid license, he would need to drive in a vehicle that has an ignition interlocking device. This requirement was part of his previous DUI situation that eventually sent him to jail. This particular device checks that you are sober before turning the ignition on to drive. Turns out, a friend loaned him the vehicle.
Deadliest Catch Star Charged
The rest of the story will not be surprising to anyone who has been following Jake Harris. According to the officers, the Deadliest Catch alum had bloodshot eyes. In addition, he looked pale, his speech “was repetitive,” and pupils constricted. The officers thought he was impaired. However, Jake did say that he took his prescribed medications that morning.
When they asked to do a sobriety test, Jake refused. Therefore, the officers booked him. Then he went to the county jail. His charges included felony DUI and two misdemeanors. The first for driving on a revoked license. The second was not driving with a vehicle that had an ignition interlock.
On Tuesday, he posted the $50k bond and he was released. There is no information on a court date.
Unfortunately, he has already been done this road once before. A few years ago, he was in a police chase. He was driving an RV and they quickly caught up with him. After receiving two felony charges, which included DUI, and the serious possession with intent to manufacture or deliver a controlled substance. The substance found in the vehicle was heroin.
His new charges, coupled with previous charges, could all be quite serious. On Wednesday, Jake Harris has shared an emotional post on his Facebook that he had “messed up.” Surely, fans will support him now.
