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.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

He probably vomited his 12 hot dogs on someone.

Are you folks so shallow that you have to tear into a persons appearance? What does Cory's weight have to do with the situation at hand? Jezz PEOPLE, get a flipping life!!! How about you direct your engery into something positive you can do in your life, and STOP dwelling on other peoples misfortune. I'd like to see the majority of the people that post the kind of trash you people write on here... I bet you'd be hard pressed to win a beauty contest! Cory, buddy, keep your chin up, learn from your mistakes, and MOVE ON. Your fans won't turn their backs, and I'm sure if any of this is accurate, whomever the other party was, had it coming!!

#69 I totally agree I was sitting here reading all these comments thinking to myself "Are you people serious with all this **** talking, Don't you have anything better to do with your life than down-grade someone else.." He is a human just like the rest of us. He may not be as good at what he does as you think he should be and thats your opinion and you should keep your **** talking to yourself...

Wow throw the guy under the bus people! We have enough hate in the world so way waste your time hating on this guy. If you don’t like him don’t watch his show! That’s the quickest way to get rid of him….

Sudden fame & money has undone many young people who were unprepared for the consequences. Just being in the public spotlight can take away many of the freedoms of being wealthy. And this can be very unsettling for the celebrity who often seeks comfort in alcohol and/or drug abuse or destructive behavior. Now, I'm speaking generally, not specifically this case. I wasn't there & I don't know the details. For all I know the bar patron had a serious need to have their ass kicked. I just hope this isn't another celebrity on the down hill slide to destruction. Good luck Big Hoss.

Of course a pawn shop is going to low ball a person, they are a business. What surprises me is how many people being told what a value is, don't decide to go to auction or look to sell privately.

HaHaHa...You people really need to get a life!! Sure they lowball people..they shoot the price..the people either accept the offer or walk off..It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that these people are in business to make money! If you don't like the offer...don't sell it..simple really!! But don't go into a pawn shop thinking your going to get "EBAY" prices for your items...And for all the fat jokers out there...look in a mirror or go look at your wedding photos...I'm sure your no Chippendale dancer and chances are... your not married to a supermodel!! GET A LIFE
