TV series personality “Chumlee” arrested in Las Vegas

Due to drug and weapon-related charges, Las Vegas police recently arrested TV personality Austin Russel, a.k.a. “Chumlee”, a KTLA 5 article reported on March 10.

Bearing a search warrant, authorities on March 9 investigated the 33-year-old “Pawn Stars” TV personality for sexual assault. Investigating authorities later discovered Russel had firearms and illegal drugs in his home. Officer Larry Hadfield stated that illegal drugs like marijuana and methamphetamine were recovered from Russel. Though Russel was not charged with sexual assault, other charges were filed against him. Though authorities are still investigating Russel for sexual assault, he was later booked at the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Facing investigation or arrest due to a drug or weapon charge is a frightening experience, especially if you are unaware of your basic rights as a citizen. If you are in such a situation, working with a skilled lawyer is critical to possibly reduce or even acquit you of your charges.
