Jake Harris is a fisherman, reality tv personality, and author. Jake was born in October 23rd, 1985, to his parents Phil and Mary Harris, in Seattle, Washington, in the United States. Deadliest Catch cast Jake was raised by his father, who had won custody of him and his older brother, Josh Harris, after he divorced with his wife, Mary. Jake did not attend higher education but instead pursued a career in fishing alongside his father. He started his fishing career as a bait boy, but after quickly running the ropes, he was promoted to a crew member. Read this to know what happened and why was Jake Harris arrested. Also, fact about his death rumors.
Who is Jake Harris?
Jake gained popularity from the reality show, Deadliest Catch, where he was cast together with his father, Phil Harris, and his brother, Josh Harris, alongside other Bering Sea crab fishing crews. The show airs on Discovery Channel revealing just what it takes to be a sea crab fisherman in the raging waters of the Bering Sea, a sea so turbulent and stormy, that it has sunk two ships that were in the reality show, namely the Scandies Rose and the Mary B 2, killing about 8 crew members.
When his father died in 2010, Jake and his brother Josh Harris were unable to continue working on the Cornelia Marie as it reminded them of their late father. Jake became part of the crew on the ship, the Northwestern, for a brief period.
Jake filmed on Deadliest Catch from its inception in 2005 up until 2013 when he left to run his late father’s coffee company, which has since expanded internationally. Jake is unmarried, but he was known to have a girlfriend whom he later broke up in 2017.
Why was Jake Harris arrested? What Happened?
Jake left Deadliest Catch in 2013, and a few years later, he would find himself in the wrong side of the law. Just like his father, Phil Harris, Jake fell victim to alcohol and substance abuse. His addiction would lead his arrest after his girlfriend in 2017 called the cops on him after Jake stole her car from a motel parking lot after fighting with her.
The officers arrested him and impounded some drugs, namely Xanax and meth in the car. He was released afterward. Trouble, however, continued to follow Jake. He was arrested in early 2019 from an RV he was driving after trying to outrun the police, after declining to pull over when they had stopped him. When the officers finally caught up with Jake, they noticed that he showed signs of drug intoxication.
He was shaking, talking fast with pale skin and bloodshot eyes. The police soon discovered 14 grams of heroin on him thanks to their sniffer dog.
Jake Harris would, later on, be sentenced to 18 months in prison in August 2019, and is currently serving his sentence, which involved four felonies, namely driving under the influence, drug possession, illegal firearm possession, and drug trafficking activities.
Jake Harris is alive and currently serving time for his four felony counts, thus debunking any claimed death rumors about him. The rumors possibly swirled from the incident where Jake was found badly beaten on the highway and hospitalized.
He sustained a broken skull from the beating and was also robbed off of $2,000. Later he helped the police trace his assaulters who were arrested. His assaulters were a girl he had met in a casino and her friends.
