Pawn Stars star Chumlee was born "Austin Russell". He got the nickname in elementary school, as his friends named him after the sidekick of cartoon character Tennessee Tuxedo, "Chumley" the walrus.
Chumlee is Corey Harrison's devoted childhood friend. He's just like a son to Rick and he’s been around since he was a kid.
Everybody loves Chum, as he always wants to give his patrons the best deal and often takes their side — a trait that never fails to push Rick’s buttons.
In latest buzz, Chumlee was taken into custody at a Las Vegas jail on Wednesday, March 9, on 19 drug charges and one weapon charge. Metro Police say they were serving a search warrant in a sexuāl assault investigation when they discovered mēthamphetamine, mārijuana and firearms in his southwest Las Vegas Valley home.
