Alan Lee Beiler, also known as the Black Amishman, has been ordered to appear in Perry County Court to answer charges filed against him by the Pennsylvania State Police.
One of the stars of the Discovery Channel television show “Amish Mafia” is scheduled to appear again in Perry County court in three weeks.
Alan Lee Beiler, 35, who lives in Paradise, Lancaster County, has been ordered to appear at 9 a.m. on February 15 at the Perry county courthouse in New Bloomfield.
Beiler had been introduced as Lebanon Levi’s event coordinator, who plans parties that supposedly earn Levi a lot of money. In the season premiere, Beiler is apparently missing and baited to return with the seizure of his property: a buggy.
Beiler was arraigned on January 17 on charges of drug possession and that he led state police on a high-speed chase along routes 11/15, 22/322 and through the streets of Duncannon in July 2012.
Troopers said they attempted to stop Beiler near the intersection of routes 11/15 and 22/322 in Reed Township, Dauphin County, at about 9 a.m. on July 7 because of an expired registration on his 2004 Jeep Liberty. Troopers allege that Instead of stopping, Beiler accelerated to 80 mph along Route 22/322 east and then entered Duncannon.
State police said that Beiler continued through the borough to Route 11/15, where he drove south in the northbound lanes and dodged at least five other cars that were traveling in the right direction, police said. During a search of Beiler’s Jeep, troopers found a small amount of marijuana hashish; Carisoprodol, a skeletal muscle relaxant; oxycodone; and Alprazolam, an anti-axiety drug.
Beiler was charged by state police troopers with 34 violations, including felony eluding police, nine misdemeanors and 24 summary counts, including driving without a license. He was released without the court requiring him to post bail.
