'Deadliest Catch' star Jacob Harris arrested for stealing car, drug possession

Former "Deadliest Catch" star Jacob Harris was arrested for car theft and drug possession on Saturday.

The 31-year-old reality star was arrested when the victim found him in Phoenix, Arizona in her allegedly stolen car 12 hours after the theft. Harris was traveling from Washington state to Arizona with a female companion, who is reportedly married to someone else.

The woman, whose identity is unknown, called police on Saturday claiming Harris stole her car. He was found at a gas station hours later, claiming he was getting breakfast for himself and the woman.

Police asked Harris to empty his pockets and a bag of Xanax pills fell out. They also found crystal meth in his possession, which he claimed was his friend's before eventually confessing that he bought it from someone off the street.

The reality star was arrested with possession of dangerous drugs, illegal possession of prescription drugs and felony theft. His court date is set for May 5.

This isn't his first run-in with the cops -- he was arrested for a DUI back in 2010. In November 2016, he was robbed, beaten and tossed from a vehicle in Washington state.

Harris was a crew member of the Cornelia Marie on the show. His father, and former Captain of the Cornelia Marie, Phil Harris, died in 2010.
