LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a Las Vegas man known to TV viewers as an occasional toy appraiser on the reality show "Pawn Stars" is facing a misdemeanor domestic battery charge after an incident last month at a downtown restaurant row.

Las Vegas police Officer Michael Rodriguez said Friday that Johnny Jimenez Jr. was arrested about 4:15 a.m. Oct. 19 on a report of a man and woman fighting on 3rd Street just north of the Fremont Street Experience pedestrian casino mall.

Paramedics also were summoned, but Rodriguez said neither the 37-year-old Jimenez nor the 28-year-old woman was hospitalized.

Jimenez's court date wasn't immediately known, and it wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.

A message left at Vegas Toy Shack, a downtown business that Jimenez manages, wasn't immediately returned.
