It would be fair to suggest that Pawn Stars cast member Austin Lee Russell – a.k.a. Chumlee – deserves a big slice of the credit for the show’s enormous success. But recently, things haven’t exactly been going well for the guy, privately or publicly. So, what exactly has gone wrong?

Well, some of Chumlee’s questionable antics of late could be connected to his rather rocky start in life.

And perhaps unsurprisingly, this led to him eventually dropping out.
