Pawn Stars cast member arrested after bar fight, attacking cop

Another reality show cast member has been arrested after an apparent drunken fight, although this one is not an MTV star. Corey Harrison, 27, who’s known as Big Hoss on the History Channel’s Pawn Stars, “was booked into jail at the sheriff’s Big Bear Lake station on suspicion of battery and resisting arrest,” KTLA reports.

Late Sunday, police “were called after Harrison and another customer reportedly got into an argument. When a deputy arrived, Harrison attacked the deputy and a security guard at the bar, according to San Bernardino County sheriff’s spokeswoman Arden Wiltshire.”

The spokesperson said he was released: “We did hold him for a couple hours to let him sober up and then we released him. That’s standard procedure for us.”
