Not in the clear yet!
Pawns Stars cast member Chumlee — real name Austin Russell — was arrested on Wednesday after Las Vegas Metropolitan Police found drugs and weapons during a raid in connection with a sexual assault case the reality star was involved in.
Well the 33-year-old isn’t going down without a fight as he’s reportedly decided to fight the charges filed against him!
Austin was booked on one weapons charge and 19 drug possession charges and his bond was set at $62,000.
Shortly after his arrest, Chumlee posted his bond and was released from jail.
Russell’s lawyer, David Chesnoff, told the Associated Press that the star is not only going to fight the felony weapon and drug charges that have been brought against him, but he’s also denying any sexual assault allegations that are filed.
Though Austin was booked on the weapons and drug charges, the sex-crime allegation is still ongoing and stems from a complaint by a woman that the authorities are looking into.
Russell is set to appear in court on May 23 to begin proceedings in trying to clear his name.
