Pawn Stars

Maybe Chumlee really is as stupid as he seems. And I'm not talking about Chumlee from the classic Tennessee Tuxedo cartoons.  I'm talking about Chumlee from the hit show 'Pawn Stars', a show which used to be great before popularity ruined it.


According to, with "Pawn Stars" cast member Chumlee getting sent to jail last week, police conducted a search of his home and their findings would make Scarface blush. According to a now-released arrest report from the reality TV star's home, authorities found quite a haul of drugs and firearms. Celebrity website TMZ released a list of what the police found and said it was "consistent with a drug dealer's setup," although Chumlee has denied that he deals narcotics.

There is allegedly a party spot in Chumlee's Las Vegas home that is called the "Chum Chum" room, where police believe drug use took place. The documents reveal that Chumlee, real name Austin Russell, had 1/4 pound of marijuana in a plastic bag, as was well 2 more jars full of weed and another smaller bag of pot. Police also found 7 clear capsules with 1.7 grams of methamphetamine powder and 17 Xanax bars.

TMZ says Chumlee admitted to smoking "a lot of weed," but said he isn't involved in distribution. He says he simply buys large quantities of the illegal-in-most-states plant for sheer convenience, given the large amount that he smokes. Police also found what they believe to be signs of cocaine use in the "Chum Chum" room, including a clear plastic baggie with white residue and also a rolled up $1 bill with white residue. The room also featured a stripper pole. And then there were the firearms… Documents show that police seized a dozen guns, but only four of them were registered to the reality TV star.

Chumlee's arrest on March 9 came as police were investigating him for an alleged sexual assault case. He has not been charged in any assault, but authorities are still investigating. The report states that officers took his bedding and drew blood from him at the jailhouse.
