Wesley Snipes Arrested

Update: Wes pled not guilty to charges of tax fraud and was released on $1 million bond. He is allowed to continue filming his movie in Namibia.

In yet another reminder that being a star don’t always exercise good judgement, Wesley Snipes was arrested for tax fraud.

According to People.com, he “is charged with fraudulently claiming nearly $12 million in tax refunds and failing to file returns from 1999 through 2004.”

Wesley had been shooting a movie in Namibia (yes, of the Angelina fame) and was arrested when he landed in Orlando, three weeks ahead of schedule. He claims he is being used as a scapegoat.

Yikes! I’m certainly not an accountant, but that sounds like a really huge no-no to me… if he’s guilty, he could go to prison for 16 years! Moral of the story? Pay your taxes.
