    Default Chumlee of tv show "Pawn Stars" Arrest- Drugs & Weapons

    LAS VEGAS (AP) The man known to millions of cable TV viewers as "Chumlee" on the reality show Pawn Stars was being held late Wednesday in a Las Vegas jail following his arrest on felony weapon and drug charges.


    Austin Lee Russell, 33, was taken into custody when officers serving a search warrant in a sexual assault investigation found methamphetamine, marijuana and at least one gun at his southwest Las Vegas home, police said in a statement.


    Russell wasn't booked on a sex-crime allegation. Officer Larry Hadfield, a department spokesman, said that part of the investigation stemmed from a recent complaint by a woman, and it is continuing.


    Russell was being held pending an initial court appearance on 19 drug-possession charges and one weapon charge, according to Clark County Detention Center records. His bail was set at $62,000. It wasn't immediately clear if Russell had a lawyer.


    A man who answered the phone at the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop on Las Vegas Boulevard said he had no information about the arrest. A follow-up voicemail message was not returned.

    A spokesman for A&E Network and the History Channel declined by email to comment.

    i know i'm missing something here, but why would they have been granted a search warrant for sexual assault claims? Maybe she knew there were drugs/weapons and made a claim that the assault happened in his home? Or maybe he did assault her in his home and they had clearance to go in to look for evidence on the premises.

    I can't believe he's only 33.

    I'm thinking the alleged assault happened in the home or they were looking for specific evidence- clothing and such if it took place outside the home.

    He looked like a harmless stoner to me, but what do I know?
