Beanie Sigel Shot in Botched Robbery
6 ABC's Action News reports that Sigel (born Dwight Grant) was shot during a failed robbery and struck in the upper arm. The incident took place around 8 a.m. Word is Sigel drove himself to a nearby hospital where he is presently being treated.
Beans told authorities that five black men in two cars cornered him. According to the self-proclaimed "broad street bully," a 30-something black man standing at approximately 5'11" with a beard and sporting jeans and timberland boots, fired shots twice in his upper right arm. Beanie described one of the cars as a dark colored vehicle with tinted windows.
Sigel has been plagued with legal trouble in the last few years. Earlier this year, the Philly emcee was found guilty of a misdemeanor assault for punching a 53-year-old man and breaking his eye socket.
He was acquitted of attempted murder last September. Months later, he was jailed until he paid $26,000 in child support and $2,000 in fines. According to his attorney, Fortunato N. Perri Jr., Sigel now plans to return to the studio, work on his clothing line and get back into acting.
