Amish Mafia star Alan Beiler (35) won’t be around for season 2. Thursday he was sentenced to 3-25 months in prison for charges related to a dramatic police car chase that occurred last summer.
He drove into oncoming traffic after being stopped for driving with expired registration, causing one of the cops to crash and get a concussion. A helicopter and canine unit were dispatched to help find him, and he was eventually found hiding in a barn where he was arrested with charges of attempting to evade police, drug possession, and driving on a suspended license. He plead guilty to the charges in May, and his attorney said his client had been drug-free for a year.
On the show Alan Beiler acts as main character Lebanon Levi‘s “event coordinator.” His job is to arrange parties for Levi that supposedly earn a lot of money.
Alan was born in Brooklyn, NY, and he and his mom were “adopted” by the Lancaster Amish when he was around 9-years-old.
