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.

I really don't care about the bar fight or his weight. What I do think is that I used to love the show, but it is getting old. I find the guys rude, arrogant and condescending with people. I would not expect to get rich when selling to a pawn shop, but it is the same old line when they are buying something from someone at a ridiculous price. "Well it may sit in the store for years, who is going to buy it etc. etc."
Hardcore Pawn is much better.

Cory is truly a fat stupid arrogant ass. He thinks every car made in the 60s-70s is a muscle car. As another commented earlier, he will drive the store to ruin if he ever runs it.

Hi, firstable I'm a fan of yor program, and I wish to sell a precolombian sculpture. I live in Colombia S.A and I can send you a picture of it by e-mail.It's from the Tubago culture and it is made of a mix of gold,copper and bronze.It's about 8 inches higth x 4 inches wide x 4 inches volume. I know this kind of things have a good market over there, but I really don't know if there will be a problem to send it to you or how will be the negociation being abroad. I really want to hear from you guys. Hey Corey, don't worry, part of life!

We're talking a big guy, semi-celebrity on a semi-real reality show about A Pawn Shop.
This incident is hardly a character endorsement, more like a sailor on shore leave with a bit o'the demon rum...
He is a leading character on a reality TV show about a pawn shop in Las Vegas, not [that i know of] a boy scout troop leader or elementary school teacher...
