Chumlee is keeping out of the public eye following his arrest.

Chumlee is staying out of the spotlight as he prepares to fight his 19 drug charges and one weapon charge.

The beloved “Pawn Stars” character cancelled his appearance to DJ at Tru nightclub in Las Vegas on Friday night, his lawyer told TMZ.

The reality star posted his $ 62,000 bailThursday, a day after authorities discovered several illegal items in his southwest Las Vegas home.

Officials found marijuana, methamphetamines and a gun, but have yet to file charges relating to the sex crimes investigation that led to the search.

The 33-year-old is known for working behind the counter at the famed Gold and Silver Pawn shop in Las Vegas.

Chumlee, whose real name is Austin Russell, is also known for partying hard, according to a source who dished to People magazine.

Chumlee is a fan favorite of “Pawn Stars” for his comic relief.

“He has a gun and smokes a lot of weed,” the source told the magazine.

The History Channel, which airs the hit show, has yet to comment on the arrest and an insider told the magazine that “they are just letting the justice system play out for right now.”

Already-filmed episodes have yet to air, and the channel reportedly does not have plans to begin production on new ones any time soon.

Russell is expected in court on May 23. His attorney, David Chesnoff, is “looking forward to a truthful resolution of the entire matter.”

“Austin has great faith in the justice system,” he added.
