“Pawn Stars” cast member Chumlee, real name Austin Russell, looks to be in a lot of legal trouble. According to police reports, he was arrested in Las Vegas earlier this week after police found drugs and weapons in his home.
Police arrived to his home in connect with a sexual assault case that they were investigating, which Russell was reportedly involved in as well. He was booked on one weapons charge and 19 drug possession charges and his bail was set at $62,000. We wonder if he had to sell any of his massive shoe collection for this. Probably not, since reality television stardom pays good money these days. He posted bail immediately and was released.
According to Chumlee’s lawyer, he is going to fight all of the charges. Russell is also denying any involvement in the sexual assault allegations, which were filed by a woman that authorities are currently talking to. He is schedule to appear in court on May 23.
