Big Hoss

from 'Pawn Stars'

Arrested for Battery

3/21/2011 12:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Corey "Big Hoss" Harrison -- the grandson on the History Channel show "Pawn Stars" -- was arrested last night after a bar fight in Big Bear, California ... TMZ has learned.

Corey Harrison Battery
Cops arrested Harrison on suspicion of battery with serious bodily injury and resisting arrest -- both misdemeanors. Law enforcement sources tell us Harrison was arrested at the bar.

Harrison was released from custody at 8:00 AM this morning.

UPDATE: Law enforcement sources tell us cops were flagged down by a security guard at the bar after Harrison had gotten into a verbal dispute with another patron ... and the guard feared the dispute could have gotten violent. 

Cops tell us ... after officers arrived and spoke to both Harrison and the other guy, Corey pushed one of the security guards and slightly pushed an officer. 

Officials claim Harrison was held in custody for several hours because he was drunk -- and needed time to sober up before he could be released.

A lawyer for Harrison tells TMZ cops asked him to apologize for the verbal spat at the scene, but Corey felt he did nothing wrong and refused.

Harrison maintains he did not get physical with anyone.

Looks like he missed the memo about leaving his arrogant pawn star attitude at the store before he headed to the mountains.

I live in the MNTS but I am not stupid enough to think he lost a bar fight then went to jail... The winner is the one with the free ride..

I am guessing that someone in the bar got their feelings hurt and was never touched and insisted someone call the cops. Grow a pair and only call the cops when something physical does happen.

Chris Farley is still alive? Must be the case, since he's up to his old ways.

"Harrison had gotten into a verbal dispute with another patron"

I don't think he is intelligent enough to have a verbal dispute, even with himself!

Ruckus had 2B at Murray's, which is the only place in town with a security staff. California's Big Bear rocks in both the Winter and Summer months and Cory might find it more to his liking during the 4th of July. He did miss a good 3 feet of powder skiing this morning and that's gotta suck...
