A 22-year-old production manager who works on Deadliest Catch and is employed by Original Productions “was charged April 27 with using and selling cocaine after he delivered about $300 worth of cocaine to an undercover officer on March 20,” The AP reports.

Matthew Schneider is not yet in custody, but is one of 18 people who’ve been charged. Court documents say “He talked about large amounts of cocaine from California being distributed at ‘Deadliest Catch’ parties in Unalaska,” according to the AP, and “used cocaine in front of the undercover officer and talked about purchasing a large amount of cocaine to sell, according to the documents.”
