Deadliest Catch Drug Dramz!

deadliest catch drama over drugs

Looks like Deadliest Catch is a source of drama…again!

First, the show's captains wanted to quit, and now one of the boat's captains has claimed that a crew member was abusing drugs on board, which has spurred a police investigation.

According to the Unalaska Department of Public Safety in Alaska, police were called by Captain Derek Ray on Nov 5 to investigate potential drug abuse by a crew member on the famous boat Cornelia Marie.

Sources say that Captain Ray told police that deceased Captain Phil Harris' son Jake was abusing prescription drugs while at sea.

Officials say that drug "paraphernalia" has been found, but sufficient evidence of Jake's drug abuse has not been found at this time.

Do U think Deadliest Catch's Jake Harris is abusing drugs? Should he be arrested?

    They showed him stealing his fathers pain medication last season. of course he's doing drugs.

    OMG, NO Jake, just no….my heart breaks for this family….



  3. 3

    I was just in Alaska by one of the Deadliest Catch boats - heard that most of the people on these boats do drugs - how else do you stay up for 48 hours at a time? But ya, Jake got caught up in this last season.

    I don't feel sorry for the stupid f***. His father passes away and he still does this shiz despite how much his drug abused stressed his father and brother (and some of the Cornelia Marie crew) out…Jake is a selfish ass who should be arrested.

    It has been televised that Jake has abused prescription drugs and has already gone to rehab. I'm sure all crews on Deadliest Catch don't appreciate this captain ragging to the cops, rather than asking Jake to go to rehab and dealing with it internally. What a terrible replacement for Phil!

    Don't be naive Perez… they ALL do drugs. This is just drama stirred up by Discovery for ratings. I'm sure that captain got a nice bonus check for calling the cops.

    People watch this show?

    Re: tevise – You are a moron. To do even the menial job of lobster fishing in Maine, we have to take "pain medication" to not only stay alert, but to have a sense of well being while away from home. Like most fisherman will say, "it's not a job for everyone". Leave the poor kid alone. He lost his dad, he struggles with addiction, (which is a classified disease by every credited medical association in the world), and he has been thrust, by his father, into a spotlight be might not have been ready for. So when you go work at Wal mart tomorrow, remember why you can't afford fresh crab.

    Re: salient – Yeah he could have shown alot more respect for his family but, you need to remember what an unforgiving disease adiction is ! I, unfortunately know first hand, how many times it takes in rehab b4 someone can over come this ! You also need to remember the reasons to stay clean are usualy the same reasons you re-lapse in the first place ! I don't think he was in rehab long enough. Maybe the captain who ratted him out was actually doing him a favor, you never know.



  10. 10

    um DUH…last season he was caught by his dad stealing his pain pills and entered rehab!



  11. 11

    Almost everyone in Dutch Harbor is a drug addict or alcoholic, the others who aren't are in denial!

    I don't think he should be arrested but he does need help. The poor kid has been through hell! All these crab fisherman endure unreal conditions, then to have your father die unexpectedly like that. It just breaks your heart. Seeing as Josh and Jake own the boat, the captian works for them, should be interesting to see if he still has his job at the end of the crab season.
    I really hope Jake gets the help he needs before he joins his dad :(

    Out of respect for his father-they should instead be shipping his butt off to rehab. Now that daddy is outta the pic-they probably just want to be gone with all of em.



  14. 14

    I feel so bad for him :( it breaks my heart and i hope he gets the help he needs.
    And to all the people that said bad things. People do drugs all the time in the US is it right? no. But people do. So dont be so negative towards this kid. He lost his father. So he could still be grieving. I dont think he needs to go to jail. He just needs help. I mean look at what he does for a living. Thats stressful. Im sure he has respect for his family but you know its peoples choice to do drugs or abuse pills. so haters stop hatin!! and not all the people on deadliest catch do drugs. Honestly deadliest catch is a amazing show and its not fake unlike all these other fake a## tv shows now a days .



  15. 15

    Althought this is true, Jake did go to rehab on his dad's behalf. That shows that he is trying to better himself.

    Regarding the "Deadliest Catch Drug Dramz"…This, um, "captain" {so-called} waited until November 5th to report this to law enforcement? And it happened WHEN? What's his motive? If it was justice, or righteous indignation, he sure as hell waited a long time to expose this issue. This captain promises to be a real d–h head. And the Cornelia Marie crew? Try getting decent work out of 'em, Captain Ray, though I would think they would do their best more out of respect for Captain Phil than for YOU. I sincerely hope and pray Jake has gotten clean and stays clean. Stay strong, brother! Stay strong!

    It could very well be some of Jake's old stuff that he didn't get rid of. Give the poor kid a break!
