NEW BLOOMFIELD, Pa. (AP) — 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 in Perry County Court.
Police say the Lancaster County resident led them on a chase after they tried to stop him for an expired car registration. They say 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 says his client has turned around his life and has been drug-free for a year.
The show provides a look at the men who protect an Amish community.
