A "Deadliest Catch" production manager is facing felony drug charges, the Associated Press reports.

According the AP, charging documents accused Matthew Schneider, 22, of allegedly talking about large amounts of cocaine being distributed at "Deadliest Catch" parties in the Alaska fishing town of Unalaska. The documents state he was charged with using and selling cocaine after he brought $300 worth of the drug to an undercover officer in April.

The Discovery Channel, which airs the show, said it didn’t employ Schneider, while a spokeswoman for the show’s producer, Original Productions, didn’t immediately return a call.
