Just Beat It, Beat It, Beat It

Hours after producer Dallas Austin told the court that he was guilty of smuggling cocaine but didn't know that he had it with him, the ruler of Dubai has given him a get out of jail free card. Austin was sentenced to four years in prison earlier today and Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum pardoned the producer who has worked with Michael Jackson, TLC and Madonna. We're wondering if Michael Jackson's announcement that he would be moving to Europe (probably Germany where he has tons of fans) and leaving The United Arab Emirates has anything to do with the decision. Either way, this guy is one lucky bastard.
