Often, the most entertaining scenarios occur when there’s no filming crew available to capture the excitement. Such was the case last year, when the star of Discovery Channel’s hit show Amish Mafia found himself in a dramatic car chase that ended with an injured state trooper. Now, reality star Alan Beiler can look forward to anywhere from three months to two years in prison.
Last summer, when Alan Beiler was about to get pulled over for an expired vehicle registration, he instead wound up in a car chase worthy of reality television…or at least the nightly news. In his desperation to escape from the police, the Amish Mafia star began to drive against traffic, ultimately causing an accident that resulted in a concussion for one of the state troopers involved in the chase.
Several months later, the reality star plead guilty to several charges, including drug possession, eluding the police and driving with an expired license. And now, Alan has officially been sentenced to a minimum of three months behind bars. However, this prison sentence has the potential to keep the offender in prison for nearly two years. His attorney feels that this is an overly harsh verdict, for, as he explains, Alan has since turned his life around and managed to remain sober for a full year. He argues that, since last summer’s car chase, the reality star has become a “better person and new man.”
This imprisonment takes place prior to the second season of Amish Mafia, so, suffice to say, we aren’t likely to see much of Alan Beiler in future episodes. That being said, we’re sure Discovery will still be able to find fill its Amish Mafia episodes with plenty of drama.
Do you think that a minimum of three months in prison is an appropriate sentence for Alan Beiler? Leave a comment and let us know!
