EXCLUSIVE

Jake Harris was arrested this weekend for stealing a car and drug possession … this after a long history of run-ins with the law.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the ex-“Deadliest Catch” star and a lady friend drove down to Phoenix from Washington state last week for what they called a “vacation.” We’re told the woman is married … but that the 2 have hung out like this before.

Friday morning, the woman told cops she discovered Jake had split from their hotel … taking her car in the process. We’re told she reported the car stolen when she couldn’t get a hold of him, but called the cops when she found him at a Circle K the next day. 

Phoenix PD officers showed up and searched him, where they say they found Xanax pills and crystal meth … which we’re told he admitted were for personal use. He was booked for 1 count of felony theft and 2 counts of felony drug possession.

This is the latest legal run-in for Jake — who was busted for DUI in 2010, and then, on the flip side, was robbed, beaten and tossed from a vehicle in November in Washington. At the time his brother, Josh, said Jake was seriously injured.
