Actor Wesley Snipes has been arrested in Orlando after surrendering himself to authorities on tax fraud charges.
The 44-year-old flew into an Orlando airport and gave himself up, a spokesman for his new film said.
An arrest warrant was issued in October for the Hollywood star over reports he had dodged millions of dollars in taxes in 1996 and 1997.
He says he is a scapegoat and has been unfairly targeted. If convicted he faces up to 16 years in prison.
Thoughts from the Soapbox – if found guilty, should be forced to make some more Blade movies instead of licence plates. I really like them
