“Pawn Stars” Chumlee Arrested in Las Vegas

I read with interest the news that Austin Lee Russell, known to millions of viewers as “Chumlee” from Pawn Stars, was arrested in Las Vegas and jailed with 19 drug possession charges including methamphetamine and marijuana and one weapon charge. WTF? Apparently, there is no truth to the rumor that when he was told his bail was set at $62,000, he said, “That ain’t going to happen. The highest I can go is $30,000.”

Of course he had a gun. Pawn shops always have guns. I think it may be a law. I doubt the drug charges will stick. I’m sure his lawyers will point out that he is a pawn broker. Certainly, someone must have brought those drugs in and tried to pawn them. As a professional pawn broker, Chumlee had to ascertain whether these drugs were what the seller claimed them to be. And what better way to determine their true value than to take some home and use a little. I’m sure this is just a misunderstanding. He was released on bond and has a court date this morning. Rick Harrison, his “Pawn Stars” co-star says he’ll be there for Austin “any way we can.” More news to follow.

  1. Rick Harrison has been campaigning for Marco Rubio. Maybe he should back Trump to get a pardon for Chumlee when Trump is President.
