    Why not use native functions?
    var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
    var removeItem = 2;
    arr.splice(arr.indexOf(removeItem ), 1);

    Exist Splice() method, the method it remove item from the index in the array.

    var arr = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5];
    var removindexitem = 2;

    arr.splice(removindexitem );

      You would need to know the index of the value in the array for this to work. This is not always guaranteed, plus also native indexOf does not work on versions of IE below IE9.

    array.pull(value); //remove
    array.push(value); //add

    array.pop(value) removes only last value from array.

    pop functionality is used only for last element .
