Police: "Pawn Stars" Cast Member Had Drugs, Guns At Home

An arrest report says Las Vegas police seized a small arsenal of guns, a gallon plastic bag containing marijuana, multiple doses of the anxiety medication Xanax and a small amount of methamphetamine at the home of reality TV star "Chumlee."

Attorneys for the defendant, whose real name is Austin Lee Russell, aren't talking about the report made public Tuesday following the arrest last week of the "Pawn Stars" cast member.

Police say the 33-year-old Russell told them he smokes "a lot of weed."

Russell posted $62,000 bail and was released from jail pending a May 23 court date.

Police say they were serving a warrant related to a woman's March 3 sexual assault complaint when they found the guns and drugs at Russell's Las Vegas home.

Russell wasn't arrested on a sex-crime allegation. Police said that investigation is ongoing.
