Alan Beiler, 'Amish Mafia' Star, Going To Jail For State Trooper Car Chase
Alan Beiler, one of the stars on Discovery Channel show Amish Mafia, was sentenced to jail time on Thursday which could range anywhere from three to 23 months.
Beiler had pleaded guilty in May to attempting to elude police, drug possession and driving with a suspended license.
Last summer, police attempted to pull Beiler over after learning that the registration on the vehicle he was driving had expired. Instead of stopping, Beiler attempted to evade the officer, leading him on a car chase in Lancaster County, Penn. Police reported that Beiler had driven against the flow of traffic, which caused a pursuing state trooper to crash his vehicle and suffer a concussion.
Mark Forrest Walmer, Beiler’s lawyer, told the Perry County Court that the reality TV star has turned his life around since the car chase. Beiler has been drug-free for a year, according to Walmer.
Amish Mafia follows Lebanon Levi and his crew of enforcers as they maintain peace and order in Lancaster County’s Amish community. The series was renewed for a second season after it became the best-rated freshman series in Discovery Chanel history.
Season two of Amish Mafia will premiere Tuesday, Aug. 13.
