Austin Russell, better known to fans of the History show Pawn Stars as Chumlee, was arrested Wednesday on felony drug and weapon charges, the Las Vegas Sun reports.

While serving a search warrant at Russell's home as part of a sexual assault investigation, Las Vegas police found methamphetamine, marijuana and guns. He is facing 19 drug possession charges and one count of possession of a gun by a prohibited person. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center with bail set at $62,000.

Russell has not been charged in the sexual assault case. The investigation is continuing.

A spokesperson for A&E Networks declined to comment to the Las Vegas Sun, but Russell's Pawn Stars co-star Rick Harrison said, "We don't have details yet but are here to help Chumlee however we can."
