His brother, Josh Harris, reported that Jake had suffered a serious brain trauma and crack on his skull. After few months, Josh updated about Jake’s recovery from the injury via Facebook.

Shortly after recovering from the incident, Jake and his female friend, who were on a vacation, had a dispute on some matter. In the rage of the dispute, he took away his friend’s car without permission and split from the hotel. She reported about the theft of her vehicle to the Phoenix PD in April 2017. The car was found the following day at Circus K and upon the search of the vehicle, the officers got hold of Xanax pills and crystal meth. Jake admitted the drugs were for his personal use. He was stamped with felony of drug possession and theft.

Apparently, a month later, Jake received an arrest warrant after failing to appear in the court on the scheduled date. He was due to appear on court to answer the allegations and face the charges of drug possession but he did not show up. He was declared wanted in the Phoenix state for violating the court order.

After spending few years of his life in a roller coaster, Jake Harris has lately been away from the controversies. Since the court incident, he has been escaping the media limelight. Since his last update on Facebook on December 21, 2017, there are no traces of him on social media. Maybe, that is for the best as he is spending time with his family and trying to get over his personal issues.

Jake Harris’ departure from the ‘Deadliest Catch’ has resulted in a flooding of unpleasant incidents in his life.

Looking at the damages that the past incidents have brought to Jake’s reputation & health, we assume his drug addiction is to be put at fault.

While he was associated with the TV series, Deadliest Catch, along with brother Josh Harris, he was one of TV’s most desired cast.

Jake made headlines in late 2016, due to an attack that had him admitted to the Intensive Care Unit with critical health damages.

The robbers beat him until he blacked out and on waking up he found himself lying on a highway with $2,400 missing from his wallet.

Shortly after healing from the unfortunate accident, Jake was accused of stealing a car of his then-girlfriend.

Jake was off on vacation with her, and after a disagreement, he headed out from their hotel in her car. She reported to the police about her missing vehicle

The car was found but along with it came Jake’s drug abuse in light; he admitted to using the Xanax pills and crystal meth.

He was then stamped with theft & drug possession felony. But he failed to appear on the date that the court had adjourned.

Following his court order violation, Jake was declared wanted around the Phoenix state in early 2017.

Jake has remained off from the controversies as of now. He is away from the media limelight spending time with his family at present.
