Jake Harris, left, and his brother Josh are both deckhands on the Cornelia Marie, which is featured on the show "The Deadliest Catch."

Captain Phil Harris dies, his son Jake is arrested for a DUI, then three captains quit and rejoin the show. Now, TMZ.com reports that on Nov. 5, one of the fishing boats featured on "The Deadliest Catch" was searched for drugs. How much more drama can the Discovery show take?

According to the gossip site, Captain Derek Ray of the vessel Cornelia Marie told police that Jake Harris -- who is a deckhand -- is abusing prescription medications while at sea.

Law enforcement officials told TMZ that police found "paraphernalia," but it wasn't enough to connect the younger Harris to a crime.
