Richard Corey Harrison, a familiar face from the TV show "Pawn Stars", was stopped and subsequently detained in Las Vegas on suspicions of DUI, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department records.
On September 8, just after 2 a.m., an officer observed a white Ford pickup truck, driven by Harrison, showing some irregularities in maintaining its lane near Main Street and Charleston Boulevard. Upon being signaled to stop, Harrison pulled over after a brief delay.
During the interaction, Harrison informed the officer of a vehicular issue, mentioning that his truck tends to “pull to the right”. The officer, noting some signs that raised suspicion of alcohol consumption, proceeded with a field sobriety test. Post the test, Harrison was taken into custody.
When asked for a breath or blood sample for further clarity, Harrison chose to consult with his legal counsel. Due to a technical issue with the breathalyzer equipment at the city jail, a blood sample was collected from Harrison. The results are awaited.
Later, Harrison shared with the media that he had traveled to Las Vegas from Minnesota and had consumed a single drink on his flight, several hours before the incident. He conveyed his intention to address the charge in due course.
Richard Corey Harrison has been a part of "Pawn Stars" since its beginning in 2009. The show, which offers a glimpse into the workings of a family-owned pawn shop, recently concluded its 21st season.
