LAS VEGAS (AP) — The reality TV personality known as Chumlee on the show “Pawn Stars” has been freed from jail following his arrest in Las Vegas on felony weapon and drug charges.
A court official said Thursday that Austin Lee Russell has a May 23 court date in Las Vegas Justice Court.
Police say Russell was taken into custody on Wednesday, when officers serving a search warrant in a sexual assault investigation found methamphetamine, marijuana and a gun at his southwest Las Vegas home.
Russell wasn’t booked on a sex-crime allegation. Police said the investigation stemmed from a recent complaint by a woman, and it is continuing.
Jail records showed Russell had been held on $62,000 bail on 19 drug-possession charges and one weapon charge.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Russell had a lawyer.
