Pair arrested after assault of "Deadliest Catch" star Jake Harris

EVERETT, Wash. -- Police say two people accused of beating a star of the hit reality TV series “Deadliest Catch” over the weekend have been arrested.

The Spokesman-Review reports 30-year-old Amanda Ritter and 29-year-old Jorel Fultz were booked into the Spokane County Jail Tuesday on suspicion of robbing Jake Harris.

Everett Police Department says they received a report of a male victim of assault Saturday after Harris had been found alongside a road in Everett around 8 p.m. Saturday.

Jake Harris suffered a cracked skull and brain trauma in the Saturday evening attack, according to his brother Josh Harris, who shared details of the alleged assault in videos posted to Facebook.

Josh Harris said his brother was “jumped” at around 8 p.m. and is in an intensive care unit. He said Jake Harris was beaten by a couple who offered him a ride home from the Quil Ceda Creek Casino, near Marysville, and thrown out of a moving vehicle along a highway in Everett.

Police say Harris told officers his wallet and $2,400 was missing.

Jake Harris and his family have been featured on the Discovery Channel show about fisherman in Alaska for many years.

Everett is about 30 miles north of Seattle.
