Officers serving a search warrant in a sexual assault investigation Wednesday afternoon arrested one of the stars of the History show “Pawn Stars,” the AP reports. Austin Lee Russell, 33, known as “Chumlee” on the reality show, was reportedly arrested on felony weapon and drug charges.
The officers allegedly found methamphetamine, marijuana and at least one gun at Russell’s home in southwest Las Vegas.
“Russell wasn’t booked on a sex-crime allegation,” the AP reports. “Officer Larry Hadfield, a department spokesman, said that part of the investigation stemmed from a recent complaint by a woman, and it is continuing.”
TMZ reports that Russell is the suspect in the sexual assault case.
The AP report cites Clark County Detention Center records saying Russell faces 19 drug-possession charges and one weapon charge. He was being held late Wednesday with bail set at $62,000.
