Austin “Chumlee” Russell, one of the stars of the popular History show "Pawn Stars," was arrested in Las Vegas on Wednesday during an investigation into a sexual assault case.

No charges have been filed in connection with the alleged assault, which is still under investigation, Deadline reported. However, police found at least one gun as well as methamphetamine and marijuana during a search of the 33-year-old reality star's home.

"We don't have details yet but are here to help Chumlee however we can," Rick Harrison, Russell's costar and owner of the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop at the heart of the show, told the Las Vegas Sun.

Russell was taken to the Clark County Detention Center, where, as of Wednesday night, he was still listed as an inmate facing charges of "possession of a gun by a prohibited person" and 19 drug-related charges. 

His bail was set at $3,000 for each drug charge and $5,000 for the gun charge, for a total of $62,000. 

He has a court appearance scheduled for 7:30 a.m. on Friday. 

Russell has been a star of "Pawn Stars since its inception in 2009, where he is often the comic relief. 

The show is in its 12th season.
