Dave Hester, one of the stars of the hit show “Storage Wars”, is suing A & E, the network that airs the show claiming that parts of the show are staged. According to Hester says he was fired from the show after he expressed concern over producers allegedly planting items in the storage units. Hester says producers plant valuable items in the units to make the show more interesting and he says the show rigs the bidding process.
A&E says it does not comment on pending litigation but in a previous statement has said “There is no staging involved. The items uncovered in the storage units are the actual items featured on the show.”
