Beans is back in the Big House...



A federal judge tossed Beans back in jail yesterday for repeated violations of his supervised release.

Authorities said Sigel, whose real name is Dwight Grant, gave a false urine sample to probation officials on Feb. 29 and also tested positive five times earlier this month for controlled substances, including Xanax and Percocet.

The former is used to treat anxiety and the latter is typically used to treat moderate to severe pain, but is considered very addictive.

U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick sentenced Sigel, 34, to three months in prison and one additional year of supervised release, which he is to continue in a drug-treatment program.

Beanie told the judge that he started using drugs again as a result of financial pressure he has been under since being on supervised release. According to him, he only gets 14 cents from each album he sells, and his legal situation doesn’t allow him to tour and collect show money.

Why would anybody ever sign a contract where they only received 14 cents for their product?
