by Brandi Stillings

Most of us are familiar with the popular A&E reality show “Storage Wars.” Eager buyers flock to make the highest bid on abandoned storage lockers in hopes they can score big bucks. Cast members compete to come out on top by digging through boxes and bins in order to find valuable goods. In other words, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

If you’re one of the millions of viewers who’ve followed this dramatic series in the past few years, you more than likely know Jarrod Schulz and Brandi Passante. The couple tend to clash often on-screen. They seem to get into an argument over every little thing and can’t agree on a many decisions. It wasn’t until Jarrod decided to take their squabble off-screen and turn it into a criminal case. His days on the show might soon be over, pending a resolution from A&E.

In late April, Jarrod allegedly pushed his now ex-girlfriend Brandi. Reportedly, they got into a heated altercation at a bar while out with friends one night. The incident resulted in a violence charge against him.

According to TMZ, “Storage Wars” star Jarrod Schulz’s days might be numbered on the popular reality TV series. It all depends on what the network determines after conducting its own investigation following his domestic violence charge. The Orange County D.A.’s Office charged him with 1 count of misdemeanor domestic violence battery for the alleged incident.

As for Jarrod’s future appearances on the show, it doesn’t look good. Not only do cast members admit to feeling uncomfortable, they’ve mentioned it wasn’t the first time the couple had issues.

Since their relationship came to a halt over two years ago, the tension between Jarrod and Brandi continues to escalate. Their fellow reality stars seemed to have noticed the situation worsening. The last few seasons have left them feeling troubled and anxious.

According to TMZ, some have described their relationship as “messy” — many connected to the show think this should be the tipping point for the network to cut ties.

Currently, the network is investigating Jarrod. He also doesn’t seem to be filming right now, and won’t be until A&E concludes its final review. Right now, circumstances are more on the negative side. Most cast members agree if the domestic violence allegations are true he shouldn’t be allowed to return back.
