Chumlee lawyers up and posts 'No Trespassing' signs on his property
LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) -- It's been two days since the drugs and firearms arrest of reality star Austin Russell, better known as Chumlee.
Along the perimeter of his Southwest Las Vegas home, 'no trespassing' signs have been posted. The gates are now padlocked with chains, but on Friday, there was no sign of the reality star himself.
"We're nervous. We hope for the best for him. We're nervous that they're going to cancel the show. Yah, that's what we're nervous about for sure," said a fan we ran into.
News 3 confirmed today that Chumlee has obtained celebrity attorney David Chesnoff to represent him. Chesnoff has represented other notables such as Bruno Mars and Paris Hilton in previous drug cases.
In a phone conversation with News 3 on Friday, Chesnoff said, "We're still in the process of gathering information. We expect a truthful outcome."
Meantime, the District Attorney's office has yet to release details of Chumlee's arrest, but Metro did confirm they are waiting for DNA lab results. The ongoing portion of his case involves a sexual assault allegation filed by a woman. Chumlee has yet to comment on the matter, and the future of his role in the Reality TV show remains uncertain.
