I know that times are hard for Chris Henry right now, what with the suspension, et cetera, et cetera. But things could get a lot worse if he doesn’t clear up that whole “stolen rental car” thing. He could end up like rapper Beanie Sigel.
Investigators said Sigel rented a 2007 Nissan Altima from Payless Car Rental in Southwest Philadelphia on July 23 - even though he has a suspended driver's license. The Altima was due back at Payless, located on Norwitch Drive near 70th Street, on Aug. 13.
Sigel never returned the car or contacted Payless, which continued to charge his credit card. Payless officials reported the car stolen on Sept. 6, police said.
Someone returned the Altima - which now had a $5,000 late fee attached - to Payless [Friday] morning, just as detectives went to Sigel's home in Lansdale to arrest him.
Sigel’s attorney says “there was some misunderstanding over when it was to be returned or whether or not payment was continuing to be made. We’re working out a time for him to surrender on Monday.”
This sounds awfully familiar to Henry’s “I didn’t know if I was paying or my insurance company was paying” excuse. I’m just saying, he might want to make sure it gets all cleared up before he’s heading in to surrender to police and giving up what’s left of the season when he gets back from his suspension.
