Chumlee and his brother had been speaking with his brother Sage about opening up their own business in Pawn Plaza some time, but without upsetting the business of other food shops in the area.
This is precisely what happened when they did when they opened their candy store that specializes in selling a wide range of American candy along with collectible Pez dispensers.
OJ Simpson's Car
Some cars brought onto the show are more interesting than others, and one of the more controversial wheels that were ever brought in was OJ Simpson's car, a white Ford Bronco. This is the same car that the former famous footballer used in his car chase with the police.
Oftentimes customers try their luck to get as much money as they can, which is what this man wanted for OJ Simpson's car. He initially wanted over a million dollars but Rick would only pay half of that.
Chumlee's and His Bodyguards
A couple of years ago Chumlee was driving around LA when a man recognized him and wanted to get his chance at the famous reality star. Eventually, this turned into a tiff and Chumlee had his bodyguards with him.
The bodyguards gave the man a warning to move away but instead, the man took a swing at Chumlee, and soon enough his bodyguards got involved, breaking his jaw. Yikes!
Back when the police raided Chumlee's house and they stumbled upon his illegal substances and guns, the police department was initially doing an investigation into an alleged assault that Chumlee was charged for.
Apparently the alleged assault charge came from a co-worker at the store.
Austin "Chumlee" Russell is a big guy, and it seems that he was always a little bit beefier than the other children. Which explains the fitting nickname 'Chumlee,' which comes from the cartoon called Tennessee Tuxedo.
One of the characters was a big walrus named Chumlee, and it was one of Russell's friends that noticed the similarity and that's how the nickname stuck.
