'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.

Not good Chum n crew "fled" the scene...whether 10 of his friends testify that it was self defense, thry just left the guy there?! Cops should have been called, esp if the guy DID have a gun cuz they might have left an armed psycho behind to shoot someone else. Chum might have had illegal drugs or been intoxicated, cuz any normal person would defend themselves and call the popo, unless their version of the story isnt what happened. Either way, if this guy is smart he got video footage from nearby shops of the beatdown and he sues cuz no footage will prove he said he has a gun. I love Pawn Stars n ChumLee but this was a dummie move. Being a well known reality star, this might result in a major lawsuit.

Chum seems to be spending a lot of money on cars...he probably should be investing the money while he's on the t.v. show, instead of driving around in fancy cars.

That he had a gun bullsh*t are lies. It's been used like 2 million times and people still believe it. If he had said that **** they wouldn't have engage in hand to hand.

You definitely dont need the kick while on the ground but he got knocked out for getting in someones face. Dont step up to someone unless you're willing to get down. And i would have dipped to. If the fool says he has a gun im not gonna wait to see if he pulls it out.

Why would you call the man who threatened Chumlee with a gun the victim. Looks to me like the Pawn Star guy escaped a possible shooting.

These "stars" are getting way too slap happy. This wasn't self defense. They attacked that man. That is complete BS.

These "stars" are getting way too happy with slapping/hitting people. They weren't defending themselves against this man. There was absolutely no need for all of them to attack him. It also looked like one of the guys in their group was kicking the man while he was on the ground. That is a bunch of BS.

It scares me to see how many people don't realize this was "staged".

Level of involvement of said celebrity,is nearly none at all... How can you even associate a person 15 feet away with an incident,he couldn't even interject into the conflict... And can't even be held responsible for the actions of someone he was with... Is this the new norm.,to seek conflict near a celebrity,and associate with them in an attempt to gain something?
