Always bet on black and white stripes
Wesley Snipes goes to jail for 3 years for tax evasion or failure to pay taxes, depending on how you want to interpret it.
Just like his Demolition Man character, Simon Phoenix, he'll now be chillin' in the big house, and kept on ice. Even praising letters from Woody Harrelson and Denzel Washington couldn't spare him jailtime. Nobody gets away with not paying taxes. Unless you're Dubya and think that the jedi mind trick actually works on the IRS.
Is this news? Nah, but damn, you'd think that his earnings from the Blade franchise would've insulated him from the rising prices of rice.
