Pete (Jerry O'Connell) tries to cut a deal for man caught with stolen Elvis memorabilia
An Elvis impersonator attempts to rob the Elvis museum and Pete takes the case. Nick defends a young man on an armed robbery charge when he finds out he was only the get away driver. Pete hears that the famous Elvis O Rama museum has been hit in Vegas. He goes crazy because he is a huge Elvis fan. He ends up getting handed the case by the Public defender's office, and takes it with glee. The man who committed the robbery was a small town guy -- not too bright, who needed some extra money to pay the rent back home. He thought he could pull off the heist, and then sell the jewelry to some other Elvis impersonators, but the other Elvis impersonators sold him down the river out of loyalty to the King. Nick and Pete take on a case where a young man got caught up with the wrong group of guys. He agreed to drive them to a bar where they were getting payment for a gambling debt. Once inside the bar, the guys started shooting, and not only that, it was a cop bar. A cop was shot, and now the young man who was just a driver, is being held for felony murder and grand larceny charges. Nick is friends with this guy’s father, who is doing everything he can to protect his boy from these trumped up charges. Nick helps them get the charges dismissed, and prove that there was jury tampering by the police force.
Elvis A Rama:
This eposide is based on the true story of the robbery which occured in 2004 at the Elvis A Rama Museum in Las Vegas owned by well known Elvis collector, Chris Davidson. The museum opened on November 5, 1999, and showcased more than $5,000,000 worth of Elvis' vehicles, jumpsuits, guitars and other memorabilia. The museum was housed in an 8,200 sq ft building that contained the museum, 100 person showroom and extensive gift shop. A break-in occurred at the museum on March, 17, 2004 with almost $300,000 worth of memorabilia stolen including Elvis' jewelry and a .38 special handgun. The stolen items were recovered on November 03, 2005 with the assistance of Duke Adams, an Elvis impersonator who was approached by, Eliab Aguilar, who was subsequently arrested by Las Vegas Metro for the robbery. The museum was located at 3401 Industrial Road, Las Vegas, Nevada.
Elvis Presley Enterprises, Inc acquired the assets and trademark to the museum and closed it on October 1, 2006 to make way for a world class Elvis attraction on the Las Vegas strip. CKX, Inc. granted Mr. Davidson the right to open a museum in Hawaii. Neither place has opened yet.
