Ex-“Deadliest Catch” star Jake Harris is sitting behind bars — and has been for more than 3 weeks — after he was arrested for felony DUI and drug possession … TMZ has learned.
The incident went down back on January 23 in Skagit County, Washington where cops say the 33-year-old wouldn’t identify himself to park rangers, who tried pulling him over. Harris took off with his RV, forcing state troopers to chase him down and force him to stop … according to docs obtained by TMZ.
Cops say the trooper noticed signs of drug use once they pulled over Harris — pinpoint pupils. bloodshot eyes and pale face. They also say he could not stand still … shaking the entire time and talking fast. Meanwhile, a K-9 alerted cops to drugs in the RV.
Cops say they found a half-ounce of heroin and other paraphernalia associated with the selling of drugs. Cops say they also found a shotgun Harris claims he bought from someone for $150 and a “ball” of heroin. Turns out it was stolen.
He was arrested and charged with 4 felonies — DUI, possession of a controlled substance, maintaining a vehicle or premises for drug trafficking and possession of a stolen firearm. They also hit him driving on a suspended license.
His bail’s been set at $200k.
