LAS VEGAS (AP) — The man known to millions of cable TV viewers as Chumlee on the reality show "Pawn Stars" was being held in a Las Vegas jail late Wednesday following his arrest on felony weapon and drug charges.

Police said Austin Lee Russell was arrested when officers serving a search warrant in a sexual assault investigation found methamphetamine, marijuana and at least one gun at his southwest Las Vegas home.

The 33-year-old Russell wasn't booked on a sex-crime allegation. Officer Larry Hadfield, a department spokesman, said that part of the investigation is continuing.

Records showed Russell was being held on 19 drug possession charges and one weapon charge. His bail was set at $62,000.

It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
