Jake Harris, star of Deadliest Catch, received a brutal beating over the weekend and was hospitalized for his injuries.


Harris was reportedly attacked outside the Quil Ceda Creek Casino in Tulalip, Washington. Local police stated that Harris got into a car with multiple people, which is where the altercation occurred.

Harris was robbed, beaten, and allegedly thrown onto the side of the highway from the movie car. When police arrived after a witness called 911, Harris “was conscious, alert, and answering questions.” He refused medical attention at the time and was brought to his home, before his family took him to the hospital.

A spokesperson for the Providence Regional Medical Center told The Seattle Times that Harris was in “satisfactory condition.”
