    Storage Wars star Mark Balelo (40) killed himself after being arrested on drug charges



    Star of A&E's "Storage Wars" Mark Balelo was found dead in his car on Monday just two days after being arrested for drug charges for possession of methamphetamine.
    In an apparent suicide, the reality TV personality parked his car and left it running at his auction house in Simi Valley, Calif asphyxiating himself with carbon monoxide Sunday night, according to TMZ.
    After his arrest it was reported that he was very distraught from the event and told his fiance to come over because he was concerned he may hurt himself.


    His fiance left the 40-year-old Balelo at his office after he seemed to be doing better but his body was found early Monday morning by employees.
    Balelo appeared in several episodes of the A&E hit reality series and was known for wearing flashy clothes and donned the nickname Rico Suave. His "Storage Wars" claim to fame was when he helped return a rare Superman comic book valued at $1 million to its owner, actor Nicholas Cage.
    "Storage Wars" has been under fire as of recent with a pending lawsuit filed by former cast member Dave Hester who is claiming the series is completely fake and valuables are placed on purpose in the storage units to make for better television.
    The network's lawyers want the lawsuit to be tossed calling it an "exaggerated self-portrait."

    Wow, I love that show. Didn't care so much for his character in the show and how he portrayed himself, but still RIP, no one should have to commit suicide to escape.

    This was BF's favorite show. He immediately stopped watching after it hit that the show was completely fake. It was pretty obvious, but I think knowing it's fake make it worse.

    Yeah, it was alwayws pretty obvious it was faked. Like the fact that there were about 50+ people at the storage auctions yet only the main characters are bidding? I don't think so. Mind, I still liked watching it.

    He was the crazy nintendo guy like. RIP.

    I'm willing to believe Duck Dynasty is the least fake of all those shows. The rest are faker than Pam Andersons tits.

    'Undercover Boss' is fake?

    A meth charge seems not worth dying for. Very sorry for those he left behind. RIP.
