EVERETT – Court documents say a man who was a cast member in the hit reality TV series “Deadliest Catch” was strangled and suffered a fractured skull during a robbery.

Amanda Ritter and Jorel Fultz were arrested in Spokane Tuesday on suspicion of robbing him.

The Daily Herald reported that 33-year-old Jake Harris also had brain swelling, broken blood vessels in his eyes and bruising from something his assailant apparently wrapped around his throat.

Harris reportedly told police that he and others were in a car coming back from a casino last Saturday when a man sitting behind him began to choke and beat him. He’d met the woman and man while gambling the day before.

Harris was found later alongside an Everett road.

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