Oh Chumlee! The ‘Pawn Stars’ fan favorite was arrested after a raid of his Las Vegas home turned up guns and drugs, and now viewers are taking to Twitter to mock the nature of his crimes!
Oh the internet is a cruel, cruel place! Beloved Pawn Stars cast member Chumlee, 33, has been arrested for possession of weapons and drugs as Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers were executing a search warrant on his home. But the raid stemmed from an ongoing sexual assault investigation of which Chumlee is a person of interest! All of this drama has made for some major internet mockery in the reality star’s direction so read on for some seriously mean tweets!
The Pawn Stars veteran’s arrest came as a shock to his many fans, since he’s such a loveable, easygoing guy on the show But some fans are taking into account that hey, he did grow up in Las Vegas and has worked in a pawn shop for his entire adult life so maybe we shouldn’t be so stunned after all. Not only that, he’s being mocked as a tweaker after cops found methamphetamine in his place! Here’s a taste of what fans had to say:
The world is not surprisingly unfazed that Chumlee from pawn Stars would do stupid things

Police took Chumlee – real name Austin Russell – in to custody after finding marijuana, meth and several guns inside his Las Vegas home. He was taken to the Clark County Detention Center where he was booked on possession charges, and his mug shot was then splashed all over the media for the world to see. In his white T-shirt and long hair pulled back, he’s staring blankly into the camera as if he can’t believe what’s going on.
Wow, who knew there was that much internet bitterness out there about Chumlee?!
HollywoodLifers, are you shocked at the nature of Chumlee’s arrest?
