Rap star Beanie Sigel will surrender to police on Monday (October 8) on charges of theft and unauthorized use of an automobile, because he allegedly failed to return a rental car for over a month.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Sigel – who’s license is suspended – rented a 2007 Nissan Altima from a Payless Rental Car service in Philadelphia on July 23.
The car was due back to Payless on August 13, but police claim Sigel never returned the car.
While Payless continued to charge Sigel’s credit card for holding on to the car, the company reported the vehicle stolen on September 6.
“Apparently there was some misunderstanding over when it was to be returned or whether or not payment was continuing to be made,” Sigel’s attorney Fortunato Perri, Sigel told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “We’re now working out a time for him to surrender on Monday.”
The Altima was returned to the dealership yesterday, just as police went to arrest Sigel’s at his home outside of Philadelphia.
Sigel, born Dwight Grant, was in New York on business when the police went to his home, which neighbors said has been unoccupied for months.
