Beanie Busted in Rental Car Rap

10/7/2007 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rapper Beanie Sigel is headed for jail -- again -- say Philly cops. The much-arrested rapper is in trouble -- this time for theft and unauthorized use of an automobile. Authorities say Sigel held on to a rental car for three months!

According to local police, Sigel rented a Nissan Altima from Payless Car Rental in Southwest Philadelphia in late July -- even though he had a suspended driver's license -- and failed to return the car.

Payless continued to charge his credit card and finally reported the car stolen on September 6. On October 5, the car was returned to Payless -- just as detectives headed to Sigel's Philly home to arrest him.

There is currently a warrant out for Sigel's arrest for failure to return the car, and said Fortunato Perri, Sigel's lawyer, Sigel will surrender to the police on Monday.

This isn't Sigel's first run-in with the law. In 2005 Sigel was jailed for failing to pay $29,000 in court-ordered child support, and in 2004 he was sentenced to a year in prison for being found in possession of 20 Percocets and 20 Xanax pills. During the same incident, Sigel was seen tossing a handgun out of his car.

Hey, guess what, most rappers ARE criminals! At least their actions show as much. I've yet to hear very many of them say anything intelligent
let alone speak normal English. Stop playing the race card, it doesn't
have anything to do with these low life clowns and their bad behavior.
I don't care what color a person's skin is, actions speak louder than
words. These idiots don't know how to behave in normal society so
I guess they'll keep getting locked up which is what they deserve.
Break the law, pay the price!

If they kept charging his card and the charges just kept going through then how could the car be stolen? They knew where it was, they got value in exchange.....this seems like it could be fought easily in court
