Jake Harris, star of Deadliest Catch, was not charged with driving under the influence. The district attorney decided against filing DUI or Hit-and-Run charges due to insufficient evidence. Harris was charged with reckless driving and driving with a suspended license following his February 18 arrest for suspicion of drunk driving. In the case, the supposed witness to the hit-and-run was unable to identify the driver. The Harris family has been struck with tragedy this year as his father Captain Phil Harris, died from a stroke on February 9.
