'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 thing the warrant of arrest was released, otherwise, young Jake Harris would be having a worst time. A lot of people are saying that the reckless driving arrest was only because he's still emotionally impaired from the death of his father but I think that regardless of the cir***stance you're in, if you're not fit to drive, then its better not to.

You guys don't know anything! It was no excuse. He really didn't know court was that day! Take your negative comments somewhere else and worry about your own lives!

I feel bad for this troubled young guy.....what a pity his Dad is no longer here to help him through this rough time in his life.....Phil's initial disgust when he discovered Jake's theft of his medication turned immediately around when Jake told him of his addiction and hugged him and told him he'd be there for him to beat his problem. One can only hope that he knows what advice his Dad would give him will help him make better decisions in the future. It was obvious that Phil dearly loved his boys!

all you people don't realize that Jake Harris is a sick man, period. Nothing he can do about anything until he has a spiritual awakening. Nothing else will help, and he's not responsible until he gets sober. Then, and only then, can he change his ways. Its a miracle that his dad caught him stealing from him and started the whole addict reality rolling. Phil Harris was supposed to die, everything happened the way it was/is supposed to. Just watch how God makes this all play out.
