Corey Harrison of “Pawn Stars” Arrested on Suspicion of DUI in Las Vegas

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that 40-year-old Corey Harrison, co-host of “Pawn Stars” and “Pawn Stars Do America,” was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated on Friday, September 8th.

According to the arrest report released by Metro Police, Harrison was pulled over at approximately 2:11 a.m. after an officer observed him weaving in and out of the bike lane near the intersection of Main Street and Charleston Boulevard.

The report notes that when the Metro Police Department officer pulled the 2020 Ford F-15  over, he first hit his lights and then had to use his speaker system before Harrison would yield.

In the report, the officer said that Harrison “carried the strong odor of alcohol” and displayed other symptoms of intoxication, such as bloodshot and droopy eyes and a “blank stare.”

Harrison told the officer he was on his way to his home at the So-Ho Lofts high rise, located a half mile from where police pulled him over. He told the officer he’d had a drink on a flight from Minneapolis to Las Vegas that night. 

The officer called for a supervisor to conduct a field sobriety test. The results of the test were redacted from the released report. However, Harrison told Metro Police that he had suffered a bad case of poison ivy, limiting his ability to pass the field sobriety test. He also claimed he became distracted when two responding officers left on another call.

While searching Harrison’s pickup truck, officers found a case of wine with Harrison’s image on the label. When asked about the wine, Harrison told police it was a gift from a friend.

Harrison agreed to have his blood drawn; however, no information about his blood-alcohol levels was released.

Harrison was arrested and booked into the Las Vegas City Jail or the Las Vegas Detention Center on the charge of DUI, where he spent eight hours before being released. His license was not revoked.
