A blockbuster lawsuit against Storage Wars has been filed by David Hester, one of its best-known figures, alleging that the A&E hit is fake and fired him out of spite.

Manuel Pardo was a decorated Florida highway patrolman and police officer, but went off the rails in epic fashion, committing nine murders for which he will be executed Tuesday.

Almost 27 years after his killing spree, Pardo, 56, will be put to death Tuesday night at Florida State Prison in Starke, fulfilling a request he made at his 1988 trial.

Manuel Pardo Mugshot

"I am a soldier, I accomplished my mission and I humbly ask you to give me the glory of ending my life and not send me to spend the rest of my days in state prison," he told the jury.

Pardo's attorneys want to block his execution, arguing in federal appeals that he is mentally ill, something his trial attorney also believed more than two decades ago.

"There is something like an emerging consensus," the conservative writer said, noting voters in three states recently endorsed same-sex marriage initiatives.

"Quite literally, the opposition to gay marriage is dying. It's old people."

Police in Victoria, Australia have issued a warning to motorists regarding Apple Maps:

Don't use it.

Officials spoke out after several travelers became stranded in the Murray-Sunset National Park trying to reach the city of Mildura using Apple's utterly inaccurate directions.

Tests of the system by police confirm the mapping application lists Mildura in the middle of the Murray Sunset National Park, about 43 MILES from its actual location.

Police are extremely concerned as there is no water within the Park and temperatures can reach as high as 114 degrees, making this a potentially life threatening issue.

LAPD detectives have apologized to the family of the late Notorious B.I.G. for failing to warn them about the planned release of his autopsy report last Friday.

The rapper (real name Christopher Wallace) was killed 15 years ago in a drive-by, but the Notorious B.I.G. autopsy report had never seen the light of day.

Biggie Smalls

The detectives intended to notify the rapper's family, but the report was released prematurely "due to an administrative error," officials said in a statement.

"Our detectives personally spoke with the Wallace family (Friday) night, and apologized for not notifying them prior to the release" said Capt. Billy Hayes.

A flashy billboard purchased by a La Jolla, Calif., millionaire looking for a certain kind of love was taken down over the weekend amid criticism and vandalism.

Marc Paskin, 62, bought a billboard on I-5 and 28th Street that featured a photo of himself and stated, bluntly, “All I want for Christmas is a Latina Girlfriend.”

La Jolla Billboard

Presumably, Marc wanted San Diego-area Latinas to contact him directly.

The blunt billboard stirred up some controversy in the area; while some residents found it lighthearted and comical, others thought it was slightly offensive.

The bill given to three friends at Chilly D's Restaurant really stung, but not because of the price, which is actually pretty affordable for dinner for three in this era.

It was the description of their table at the top.

"I got the bill, I looked [and] I was like, 'Why does this receipt say 'fat girls?'" customer Christine Duran said, recalling her Stockton, Calif., experience.

Fat Girls Receipt

The friends had dined out at Chilly D's, part of the Cameo Casino Restaurant, on Thursday.

The bill lists charges for three tri-tips with fries and three sodas, for $25.50. A bartender named Jeff had apparently typed in "Fat Girls" to keep track of their bill.
