Things just went from bad to worse for washed up rapper Beanie Sigel. The former Roc-A-Fella artist released his new album, This Time yesterday Tuesday (August 28). Beans was expected to begin his two-year prison sentence on September 12, after being sentenced on tax evasion charges last month. Earlier this morning Wednesday (August 29), Beans was arrested in Pennsylvania following a traffic stop.
According to ABC, “It was around 3:15 a.m. when Pennsylvania State Troopers noticed a tan Ford Fusion following another vehicle too closely and swerving out of its lane of travel. The Troopers pulled the Ford over and approached the vehicle. The driver, identified as Gerald Andrews of Philadelphia, was order out of the vehicle and a check for weapons revealed several prescription bottles and a small amount of marijuana. Troopers then focused their attention to the passenger, identified as Dwight E Grant, also known as famous Philadelphia rapper “Beanie Sigel.” Police searched Grant and found approximately $4,650 cash, a bottle of codeine syrup with a scratched off label, and several prescription pills wrapped in plastic bags located in a cigarette pack. Both men were detained, and during a search of the vehicle Troopers found a firearm located in the center console. Andrews and Grant are both convicted felons and not allowed to possess a firearm. Andrews and Grant were transported to Pennsylvania State Police barracks in Media to be processed and arraigned.”
