'Wanted' Deadliest Catch Star -- Oops, My Bad

4/22/2010 4:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

'Wanted' Deadliest Catch Star He's a hell of a fisherman, but it seems "Deadliest Catch" star Jake Harris is a fish out of water when it comes to organizing his calendar -- and that's why he's a wanted man.

After a judge in King County, Washington issued a bench warrant for Jake's arrest yesterday -- for no-showing at his reckless driving pre-trial -- Harris' lawyer told TMZ that his client simply screwed up the date.

Attorney Ed Ritter tells us Jake was actually looking forward to court, but accidentally marked it down on his calendar on the wrong day. Ritter claims Jake plans on attending court later today to "squash the warrant and apologize profusely to the judge."

As we previously reported, Harris was arrested back in February over an allegedly dangerous late night joy ride.

UPDATE 3:18 PM PT: Ritter tells TMZ Jake showed up to court today and apologized to the judge. We're told the warrant was released and a new pretrial date was set.

Good excuse. Marked it wrong on his calander. I guess he can blame that on his dad's death as well. GROW UP JAKE. More worrie's your family don't need. You are a jerk no matter which way you look at it.

I once missed a court date because I was serving on a jury and forgot, the judge did not care. I hope Jake's judge is a fan of the show. He should say he was run over by Heather Locklear.

This "boy" is a man. This "boy" has grown up before us on a reality TV show. This man lost his father abruptly, but then death does not schedule its date in a calendar pad. This young man was driving recklessly and arrested for it. HOW MANY OTHER YOUNG MEN ARE ARRESTED FOR LEAD FOOTING IT ?
Get over it it happens. It was not vehicular homicide for christs sake! And 24 year old men do drink, it is not against the law in any state I know of at present.
Jake's attny will handle this with ease. I would go so far as to bet this is not his first client that missed a court appearance.
Common sense will prevail.

The day he was arrested was the day of his fathers funeral I believe. Maybe it was the day before, but I remember reading that. So sure he was probably drunk and wreckless, but thats not excuse to be driving.

Overused, outdated.

Unless his lawyer finished last in his class, HE should have had it on HIS calendar and reminded his client, who would be Jake. Doesn't mean Jake isn't responsible for getting himself there. He is. But I would have fired the lawyer by now.

Ah, I see. He's using the "I'm a dumba$$" defense. I'm sure the judge has never heard THAT ONE before!
