'Deadliest Catch' Captain

ATTACKS Cameraman

7/17/2011 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Deadliest Catch" captain Keith Colburn lashed out in a FEROCIOUS expletive-filled attack on one of the boat's cameramen recently -- bum-rushing the guy into a wall -- and it was all caught on tape.

Keith lost his temper after the photog in question -- named Brad Carper -- called up to the wheelhouse looking for one of the show's producers, interrupting Keith at exactly the wrong time.

Keith snapped.

The fight, which airs next Tuesday on Discovery, went down a couple months ago -- near the end of opilio crab fishing season -- and sources connected with the show tell TMZ, Keith was extremely stressed at the time ... and his fuse was real short. No kidding.

But it's all water under the bridge now -- according to sources, Keith and Brad are back on good terms and all is well. No hard feelings.

Yeah, I like all the captains except this guy. You can tell he's an a-hole just by looking at him. He just has it wafting off him.

I cannot stand this captain. He is really the only one I dont like. He for whatever reason thinks he is better then everyone else and is an arogant a**. I wish they would take him off the air. He treats his crew like crap too.

Keith is really an a**

Every episode that they show him...I fast forward through. He talks to grown men like they are children. Is he going through some mental issues these days or what? Financial stress? I think the producers of this show need to take their film crews off his boat. The guy is going to crack.

I would love a shot at putting Keith down. The guy is a complete *******. I am 100% certain once of us would walk away and he wouldn't be the one.

Her pulled the same crap with one of the other captains (John?) last season and he put him down hard.

Keith is the one captain that everyone can't stand. He is such a jerk and is so fake. It's always so awkward on "After the Catch" because none of the other captains like him and they cut him off and never listen to anything he tries to add to the conversation. I wish they'd replace him. He's such a hot head and tries way too hard to seem like this tough guy, but there's a difference between being a truly good, but strict captain and being an a-hole.

I like the new captains they added this year. I'm sure they could find one more so they could dump Keith. I bet the Hillstrands would light off more than a few fireworks over that news....

I wish the people at TDC would get off their lazy asses and come up with some new programming.

Enough of this crab fishing BS already.

No, that's not fake at all.

Gee, will it get ratings? A little. The sheeple will watch at least :)

This a**hole Keith is always crying about something. He pulled a Christian Bale on the camera guy because he interupted his big crying scene. Douch bag is right. He is an arrogant bully and I wish someone would knock his lights out already.
