Wesley Snipes Released From Prison
Actor Wesley Snipes has been released from prison after serving about three years in prison for tax evasion, and has uploaded a picture of himself wearing a shirt that says "Out on Bail" apparently to be funny. He started his sentence in 2010 for failing to file income tax returns, and will now remain under house arrest for another four months in order to complete his three year sentence.
Snipes, 50, has starred in tons of films including Jungle Fever and Passenger 57, but is most famous internationally for the Blade trilogy. Prosecutors say he failed to file returns for about 10 years, and owed millions of dollars in back taxes.
