Beanie back before the beak

Beanie Sigel had got quite close to the end of his period of close control by the US state, but it looks like he might have blown it: the Probation service are asking for his status to be revised. Sigel was under a two year supervised release program after some business with guns and drugs; the Probation Service is miffed that he never mentioned to them he'd been stopped and questioned by police last August and even more annoyed that he's tested positive for codeine and morphine at the end of 2006.

Sigel countered that his doctor has prescribed him drugs with codeine and morphine in shortly before a random drug test.

Judge Surrick extended Sigel's supervised release period by six months, and warned him to straighten up and fly right:

He told Sigel he would have to get the situation "under control or otherwise I'm going to have to take action you're not going to appreciate."

Because, of course, Sigel would have been delighted by an extra six months of peeing in a bottle when the police have a whim.
