Wesley Snipes Indicted For Tax Fraud

"Blade" trilogy actor Wesley Snipes was indicted on eight counts of tax fraud earlier this morning. He is being accused of using false refund claims for nearly $12 million in 1996 and 1997. He's also being charged with failing to file tax returns between 1999 and 2004.

Snipes faces up to 16 years in prison if convicted, though he hasn't been arrested since authorities don't know where he is.

I guess the thing about having a lot of money is that you always want more - or something like that.

    Snipes has said he was done with the Blade series, but being broke can certainly make a man change his mind :) Maybe this will bode will for the TV show...Snipes could take over. Yeah, I know it's wishful thinking, but I would have loved at least three seasons...le sigh.

    Is Wesley Snipes insane? I mean going up against vampires is one thing, but the IRS, he must be off his rocker.
