There is a $500 bench warrant out for Deadliest Catch star, Jake Harris.

People reports that Harris, 24, failed to appear at a court hearing Wednesday (April 21) stemming from his reckless driving case. “The court issued a bench warrant for his arrest,” King County, Wash., prosecutor spokesman Dan Donohoe tells People. He could possibly face a maximum of a year and three months in jail if convicted for reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.

But Harris’ attorney Ed Ritter says that missing his hearing was just a simple mistake.

“Jake just made a mistake on his scheduling,” he said Wednesday. “We plan on going in [Thursday] at 2 p.m. to clear it all up.”
