Rapper Beanie Sigel was acquitted Monday on charges he shot and nearly killed a man two years ago on a crowded city street
Philadelphia rapper Beanie Sigel cleared Monday in attempted murder retrial. The 31-year old star, born Dwight Grant, was facing a retrial for allegedly shooting Terrance Speller outside a strip club on a crowded Philadelphia street, July 2003.
Speller claimed that he first told police he was shot during a robbery, but a day later told family and police Sigel shot him and was initially afraid to tell the truth. Yet, after a careful investigation, jury decided to clear Sigel from charges and he's now free.
