Chumlee is dodging serious jail time in his drugs and guns case, and will NOT face any sex assault charges ... TMZ has learned.
The "Pawn Stars" cast member was busted back in March when Vegas cops raided his home during a sex assault investigation. TMZ broke the story ... cops say they found at least one gun as well as a bunch of marijuana.
According to docs obtained by TMZ ... the D.A. will charge Chumlee with felony possession of a firearm and felony possession of a controlled substance -- but the twist is ... his attorneys got him a sweet plea deal.

As for the alleged sexual assault ... we're told police and Chumlee's attorneys, David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, ran an exhaustive investigation. Both sides found there was not enough evidence to charge him.
We're told the judge still needs to sign off on the plea deal.

Harrison's family and friends were throwing him a birthday party this weekend at his house ... but before the bash, he left on his motorcycle to grab a few supplies.
Corey says a piece of the bottom fender mount suddenly broke off ... sending his bike into a tailspin at 40 mph. The reality star was faced with two options -- fly into a nearby wall/oncoming traffic, or jump off the bike. He chose door #2.
Harrison was not about to let partygoers down ... so he chose to go to the party instead of the hospital. After the party he took a trip to the ER where he learned he had a broken hand. Doctors surgically placed 8 screws and 2 plates into his busted hand.
Corey couldn't celebrate the party he hoped to have Monday night at the D Hotel and Casino in Vegas ... so they ended up bringing the party to him ... at his humble abode.
'Pawn Stars' Violent Biker Gang Tricked The Old Man
3/3/2014 12:45 AM PST
The "Pawn Star" patriarch known as The Old Man was unwittingly lured into helping a violent motorcycle gang beat serious criminal charges ... so claims The Old Man's son.
The Old Man recently hosted a Valentine's Day party for the infamous Vagos biker gang at his Vegas home. The gang wanted The Old Man to host because of his fame, banking on the fact that lots of people would attend and plunk money down to win various raffles.
Now here's the alleged scam. Sources say the proceeds from the raffle went right into a slush fund used to pay for lawyers for members of the gang that commit crimes. And the Vagos crew gets into LOTS of trouble.
A 4-year federal investigation resulted in the arrests of 32 gang members -- mostly Vagos -- for crimes ranging from gun and drug trafficking to robbery.
Rick Harrison, "Pawn Stars" star and also son of The Old Man, tells TMZ the gang took advantage of his 72-year-old dad who had no idea he was fronting a party for nefarious purposes.
Rick also knows exactly how is father got bamboozled. Rick's brother, Joseph, is a long-time member of Vagos with a big-time rap sheet.

'Pawn Stars' Ex-Agent New Agent Stole My Clients So Pay Me!
12/11/2012 6:40 PM PST
The guys from "Pawn Stars" struck it rich with their hit show -- and then turned their backs on the agents who brokered their initial contracts ... that according to a new lawsuit filed by the jilted talent agency.
The suit, filed by Venture IAB in L.A. County Superior Court ... claims all 3 Harrisons and Chumlee inked deals in 2007 and 2009 for the agency to represent them -- before "Pawn Stars" started airing on The History Channel.
According to the suit, in January 2010 -- 6 months after the show hit the air -- another agent and 2 'Pawn' execs ... convinced the cast to terminate their deal with Venture IAB.
In the suit, Venture claims the execs -- Mary Donahue and Nancy Dubuc -- "intended to disrupt" the agency's deal with the guys so their "friend and agent" could sign them.
Venture IAB is suing The History Channel, the agent and the execs for more than $5 million in damages.
As we previously reported, a very similar suit was filed by an ex-manager -- but that one named the Harrisons and Chumlee as defendants.

12/10/2012 2:10 AM PST
Dear "Pawn Stars" stars ... next time you're gonna TRASH your campground, make sure there are no cops around ... because in the State of CA it's a misdemeanor crime!!!
Rick and Corey Harrison -- a.k.a. the pawn shop boss and his son -- went camping in Glamis, CA over Thanksgiving weekend with some friends ... problem is, we're told they left the place a mess.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... cops discovered A TON of trash where the History Channel stars camped out ... specifically beer cans, garbage and a bbq grill ... enough to fill up 10 TRASH BAGS.
FYI ... We're told cops KNEW the reality TV stars were the ones camping in the trash spot -- and causing the mess -- due to a previous encounter that weekend.
Dumping trash in the campgrounds is illegal and NOT taken lightly ... in fact, we're told law enforcement slapped the guys with a huge fine ... to the tune of $1,000 a person ... and that's NOT negotiable.
Corey Harrison tells TMZ, "We left the campground before our buddies did and they were to clean it up and apparently didn't follow through. My father nor I were cited."
'Pawn Stars' Sued -- I Made You Guys Famous ... and You SCREWED Me
10/4/2012 2:55 PM PDT
Rick, Corey, the Old Man and Chumlee ... are all getting their asses sued by their ex-manager, who claims he discovered the "Pawn Stars" and made them famous ... only to get stabbed in the back.
The man behind the lawsuit is Wayne Jefferies -- who claims he found the guys from Gold & Silver Pawn back in 2007 and got them a reality TV show deal with A&E and the History Channel ... after Rick had struck out in the past.
Jefferies claims things were going great for years -- with the show killing it in the ratings and the guys all cutting various endorsement deals ... including credit cards, slot machines, books and even an energy drink.
But according to the suit, things fell apart earlier this year .. when network honchos became upset over a story Jefferies claims he leaked to TMZ. The story detailed how the "Pawn Stars" cast was blindsided when they learned A&E had commissioned a "Cajun Pawn Stars" spinoff.
In his suit, filed by powerhouse attorney Richard A. Schonfeld, Jefferies claims network execs pressured the "Pawn Stars" cast to cut ties with Jefferies ... which they did.
Jefferies is now suing the "Pawn Stars" guys for breach of contract ... and he's also suing A&E, the History Channel and various execs for interfering with his management deals.
Jefferies is asking for unspecified damages. Calls to the Pawn Stars and the networks have not been returned.

7/12/2012 6:30 AM PDT
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.
