People is reporting that Jake Harris — a star of Deadliest Catch and son of the late Captain Phil Harris — was arrested in Seattle on drunk driving and hit and run charges after crashing his car late yesterday. He’s currently in jail with bail set at $2,000. “Mr. Harris was spotted driving a BMW 3 Series erratically Thursday evening by a citizen in Shoreline, Wa. We were able to locate his vehicle by aircraft, and he was pulled over in the Seattle area. The car was registered to his father,” said Washington State Patrol spokesman Dan McDonald. Harris is a deckhand on the Cornelia Marie. He and his brother Josh have been mourning the death of their father, who passed earlier this month.
