Currently unemployed actor Wesley Snipes was arrested at the Orlando International Airport in Florida on income-tax evasion charges. Snipes has been faces these charges for quite some time & has finally been arrested. I wonder if he tried some of those fancy Blade moves when the cops came to get him?….
Snipes could face up to 16 years (Ouch!) in prison for failing to pay his income taxes. Now, that’s a big oops! Wesley was indicted on October 17 for illegally claiming tax refunds totally about $12 million. Ginormous oops there, eh? The years in question for the Rising Sun actor are 1999 through 2004. That’s a pretty big time period, wouldn’t you say?
In an email, Snipes said he felt he was being targeted by the public, saying, “It appears I’m to be the scapegoat, because there’s more public interest in ‘celebrities gone bad’ than ‘rich people being taken advantage of.”
“Being a black male who asks questions doesn’t help the situation either. But this is a serious issue … I will abide by the law.”
Oh, Wesley are you going to play that card? Well, I guess you should play any card you can. What about the bad actor card? That one would work a whole hell of a lot better, man.
