Beanie Sigel Arrested With Gun And Drugs After Traffic Stop

Rapper Beanie Sigel was arrested on Wednesday morning (August 29), just two weeks before he was scheduled to turn himself in to begin a two-year prison sentence for failure to file taxes.  Pennsylvania State Police charged him with weapon and drug offenses after being stopped on I-95, just south of Philadelphia.

Sigel, who just released a new album on Tuesday, was pulled over after troopers observed his tan Ford Fusion swerving while driving along Interstate 95 at approximately 3:15 a.m. They reportedly found more than $4,000 in cash, a bottle of codeine syrup with the label scratched off and several prescription pills. Troopers also found a fully loaded .38-caliber Smith and Wesson handgun in the center console of the vehicle. Sigel was not the driver of the vehicle. Read more and see photos from the arrest...

Last week Sigel gave troubling and unsettling interviews at Hip Hop radio stations Power 105.1 and Hot 97 in New York in anticipation of the release of his album where he talked about his family, and his relationship with Jay-Z. The rapper while attempting to revive his career under the Ruffhouse Label, was on a promotion tour before his prison sentence is set to begin in September.
