Mark Balelo 'commits suicide in car a day after being arrested on drug charges'

A star of the reality show Storage Wars has committed suicide a day after he was arrested on drug charges.

Mark Balelo, who had made frequent appearances on the television show, was found dead of presumed carbon monoxide poisoning on Monday morning when his co-worker discovered his body in his car that he parked inside the auction house garage.

Though carbon monoxide poisoning seems likely since the engine of his car was left running, a full autopsy will be completed on Tuesday.
