Authorities are investigating after a family member says one of the stars of the hit reality TV series "Deadliest Catch" was assaulted over the weekend.

Josh Harris says on social media that his brother Jake Harris was beaten and severely injured Saturday night. The Everett Police Department says they received a report of "a male victim of an assault."

Police spokesman Aaron Snell told The Seattle Times the victim was found by a passer-by who called 911. The man refused medical attention and was taken home by police.

Harris is the son of late “Deadliest Catch” star Captain Phil Harris from The Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch,” which depicts the crab fishing industry off the waters of Alaska.

Everett is about 30 miles north of Seattle.
