Jake Harris' bad week continues.
"Deadliest Catch" deckhand Jake Harris has had a bad week. Last Tuesday he lost his dad, the lovably gruff Captain Phil. And last night he was arrested for investigation of drunk driving and hit-and-run.

Washington State Troopers stopped the 24-year-old's BMW around 9 p.m. last night at the Mercer St. exit on I-5. He was then arrested for investigation of DUI and driving with a suspended license.

The WSP later got a call that a similar car had rear-ended another vehicle near where 520 and I-5 meet hours before Captain Phil's youngest son was arrested. That car, said the caller, then sped off.

A spokesperson for the family told KIRO that Harris was booked last night. But says he wasn't drunk, and didn't hit any other cars.
