During a search warrant pertaining to an ongoing sexual assault investigation, Las Vegas police arrested Pawn Star celebrity Austin Lee Russell, better known to his fans as Chumlee, for possession of methamphetamine, marijuana and firearms.
Upon learning about the charges, Pawn Star boss Rick Harrison offered Chumlee his support.
“We don’t have details yet, but we are here to help Chumlee any way we can.”
Of course, given the nature of Pawn Stars, Twitter reacted to Chumlee’s arrest pretty much like you’d expect them too:
I would pay good bucks to see the pawn star guys negotiate Chumlee's bail like they do on the show

Chumlee from 'Pawn Stars' was just arrested, bail set at $62,000. I bet he then told the judge, "Sorry, the lowest I can go is $7,500."

So Chumlee from Pawn Stars was jailed. I heard his bail is set at $62k but the best Rick can go is $50.

Chumlee's bail hearing:
"Alright your bails like $6m. Usually it's like $5k, but we gotta do some long paper work. $6m's the best i can do"
