Police say his limousine driver was high from an immense, billowing cloud of secondhand marijuana smoke.

LAS VEGAS — Austin “Chumlee” Rustle, known widely for his employment at the famed Gold and Silver Pawn Shop featured on “History” Channel’s “Pawn Stars” Reality Television Show, was arrested Friday for possession of over seven pounds of marijuana after police pulled his limo over for erratic driving. Chumlee’s lawyer, Jay Leiderman, said, “Chum had no intent to distribute this marijuana; all seven pounds were clearly for personal use.”

Richard “Old Man” Harisson and his son Corey “Big Hoss” Harisson reportedly paid Chum’s two million dollar bail, but Chumlee still faces up to 100 years in prison. History Channel did not comment on the incident, but Chumlee’s agent, Jorge Luis Peron, said Chum already checked into rehab, “Chumlee’s life has been a nightmare of drugs and video games, and this has hindered his performance at Gold and Silver. He’s gettin’ the help he needs! Chum will be back and better than ever in no time, don’t worry folks.”

    Lets give 100 years for 7lbs of weed. But only 15 for murder.

    My Uncle Hound was busted with 75 pounds in the back of his el camino in ’73, had a stand off with police for an hour before giving up and he only did 20 years. 100 for 7 pounds is way too much. a year a pound is more reasonable.

    100 years for seven pounds? When my uncle was 18 he got caught with exactly 18 pounds of marijuana when pulled over by cops all he did was spend the night or two in jail until he was bailed out. Obviously these laws against marijuana are starting to get a little bit out of hand and ridiculous
