Deadliest Catch star Jake Harris is not off the hook yet, despite being cleared of DUI and hit-and-run allegations Monday.

Harris, who was arrested Feb. 18, won't be prosecuted for those crimes due to a lack of evidence, but Seattle prosecutors are pursuing two other misdemeanors against him.

Harris, 24, whose father Capt. Phil Harris died from complications of a stroke on Feb. 9, has been formally charged with reckless driving and driving with a suspended license. If convicted, he faces a maximum of a year and three months in jail.

"We didn't file charges of DUI or hit-and-run due to insufficient evidence," Seattle prosecutor spokesman Dan Donohoe tells PEOPLE. "The witness [to the alleged crash] couldn't identify the driver."



The reality star was pulled over in his father's BMW in Seattle and was initially booked for DUI, hit-and-run and driving with a suspended license.

His next court hearing is set for March 26.
