'Pawn Stars' Chumlee


on Hollywood Blvd.

Exclusive Details

Chumlee from "Pawn Stars" was involved in a crazy -- and bloody -- fight right in the middle of Hollywood Blvd. this weekend ... but the reality star tells TMZ it was all in self-defense.

A video has surfaced showing Chum and his pals hanging out in front of Chum's Rolls Royce ... when they are approached by an unknown man.

Chum tells us ... the guy was harassing the group and demanding a ride in the Rolls. When Chum's group refused, Chum says the man threatened to pull a gun.

Chum says the man then reached for something in his pocket ... so his boys took action, socking the guy in the face HARD ... dropping the man to the pavement.

Once the guy hit the floor, Chum and his crew scrambled to get back in the car and quickly fled the scene ... while the man tried to pick himself up, blood pouring out of his face.

Chum tells TMZ, "Instinct just took over. [The man] didn’t even know I was on TV or anything … just wanted to ride in our car and start problems.”

So far, no word on the identity of the victim or his current condition.

Bunch of *******. It's one thing to punch a man 1 on 1, but kicking him and other said gang tactics are disgusting. Dude deserved the first hit, but other than that those dudes are puss. Must be a LA thing.

First, this Chumlee dude looks like a real A$$. Some fat, sloppy Goober dressed like 12 year old gangster wanna be. Then he's got his friends who are kicking the **** of of some dude. You don't think this guy is going to find himself a good lawyer today once he finds out some reality show moron and his hired friends assaulted him?
I don't really watch that show, but I have seen parts of it, and this clown seems to be the comic relief - the idiot everyone makes fun of. I have a feeling he won't be laughing when the lawyers and maybe the police start calling on him.
Chum Bucket, it's gonna be awful hard to lawyer up against an i-phone video that's on YouTube. BTW, loved the "he was reaching for a gun" excuse. That'll load of crap will go over real big in court.

Why is the brotha called the victim? Looks like he was threatening the group and got clocked for it. He's not a victim, he's just a thug who got what he deserved. There was no reason for him to step off the curb.

You run because the guy claimed to have a gun dumbasses. It's exactly what they teach you in self defense classes. Strike to give yourself an opportunity to escape.

One guy was defending himself and justified, other two guys were just kicking a man after he was down.
Chumlee isn't involved either way, he was protecting his handsome mug for the ladies ;)

Someone comes up on you and says they have a gun and then reach for it, they are threatening your life. Best thing you can do is put them on the ground and get away as fast as you can. Since there is no clear audio, I have no idea what was going down there. I do have to wonder if it was a set-up. Seems mighty convenient that there was someone filming the whole thing from the perfect angle to capture everything, but not close enough to hear what the guy was saying to them.

What BS... first off they were blocking the street, standing around like a bunch of thugs. One of the bald guys looks like he is the one starting ****. Waving at the guy with 'come on' motion. Then the guy gets gang thrashed .. kicked while down.. yeah self defense my ass. That's why they kicked and ran like a bunch of little punks.

The black dude had no business going over to the group. He deserved what he got.

This guy totally had everything coming, kicking him was a little too far, but its 100% understandable, when your in a protective state that's what happens. The only wrong thing here is this clown bothering the group.

Chumlee and his crew did nothing wrong. They attempted to walk away and that ****en idiot was being aggressive. He got exactly what he deserved.
