TAMPA, Fla. — Actor Wesley Snipes was indicted Tuesday on eight counts of tax fraud, accused of trying to cheat the government out of nearly $12 million in false refund claims and not filing returns for six years.
Prosecutors said Snipes fraudulently claimed refunds totaling nearly $12 million in 1996 and 1997 on income taxes already paid. The star of the "Blade" trilogy and other films including "Jungle Fever" and "White Men Can't Jump" was also charged with failure to file returns from 1999 through 2004.
While the story is disturbing, I will not declare Wesley guilty until proven innocent....who knows how this case will go. What really disturbs me is that hat. Who told him that was a good look? He looks like an extra from the set of A Clockwork Orange...or maybe he is taking hints from the wardrobe people that worked on Freedomland...because that hat sucks too. Thats right, Mace Windu, your hat alone kept me from even considering that film.
