    The "Old Man" won't be happy about this !
    Not even sure if the show is still running, haven't watched it in quite a while. Would seem like grounds for immediate dismissal, considering they fired a girl just for posing nude years ago.



    “Pawn Stars” personality Chumlee has been arrested on charges of possessing drugs and a weapon, a spokesman for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department told TheWrap on Wednesday.


    According to police, a search warrant was issued on the reality TV star (real name: Austin Russell) for an alleged sexual assault.

    When the warrant was executed, officers found marijuana and methamphetamine, as well as a weapon.

    I don't watch these shows, but I'm not surprised. Some of TV entertainment is in the gutter, as apparently are the participants.

    On that same page were other lurid tidbits.

    You need to fix the thread title. He wasn't arrested for sexual assault, he's the subject of a sexual assault investigation. He was only arrested for meth, weed, and possession of a firearm by an unqualified. He's obviously had a felony conviction in the past, however I haven't seen any mention of why he's unqualified.

    Now wait, are we sure that meth wasn't actually Desoxyn (prescription methamphetamine)? It's FDA approved for ADHD and Obesity. His figure does not look like that of a meth addict.

    Are we also sure he didn't receive this as a pawn and was going over to an expert to assess the legitimacy and value?

    Tennessee Tuxedo is a little before my time, but I grew up with a couple VHS tapes. I have fond memories of Chumleee the Walrus! and Phineous James Whoopie, of course.

    I can't really say I'm really surprise he takes drugs.

    But yeah, if they don't fire him after the incident with Olivia I'm calling shenanigans.

    In what parallel universe have you been living the last six years?

    Well I reckon if chum wants to sue me for spreading false rumors, the door is wide open !
    I didn't want to end up with a thread title a paragraph long, so it was summarized a bit. The article itself lacks details, I suppose those interested can pursue it as they please.

    The Obama economy is so bad, millions of Americans have been driven to pawn worthless household trinkets to make ends meet/cover their blackjack losses. Thrusting true-blue American patriots like Chumlee into an unbearable lamestream media spotlight. Unable to find a doctor to treat him under his Obamacare health plan; Chumlee resorted to self-medication; while staunchly upholding his 2nd Amendment right to defend himself, in case Obama makes good on his threat take away the guns from convicted felons.

    IOW: Its all the Black Guy in The White House fault.

    I doubt it will. Most people here are liberals. Facts be damned.

    I stopped watching when I finally figured out how much of a setup the premise is. :(
