Deadliest Catch Star Involved In Fatal DUI


The Soldotna man allegedly responsible for hitting and killing a snowmachiner off of Brown’s Lake Road last week was once a ship captain on the pilot television series that spawned the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch.”

Clarence “Ole” Helgevold, 59, captained the Arctic Dawn on a three-part miniseries called “America’s Deadliest Season,” which premiered in July 2004. The show, effectively a pilot for what is now known as “Deadliest Catch,” followed Helgevold and his crew during the 2003-2004 opilio crab season.
