‘Amish Mafia’ star imprisoned after car chase

/ 11:07 PM August 09, 2013

NEW BLOOMFIELD, Pennsylvania – A Pennsylvania man who stars in the Discovery Channel show “Amish Mafia” has been sentenced to three to 23 months in prison for leading police on a chase that injured a state trooper last summer.

Thirty-five-year-old Alan Beiler received the sentence Thursday.

Police said Beiler led them on a chase after they tried to stop him for an expired car registration.


They said he drove against traffic and caused a pursuing state trooper to crash and suffer a concussion.

Beiler pleaded guilty in May to charges of attempting to elude police, drug possession and driving with a suspended license.

Defense attorney Mark Forrest Walmer said his client has turned his life around and has been drug-free for a year.

The show provides a look at the men who protect an Amish community.
