Wesley Snipes Is Officially Behind Bars

Wesley Snipes has a new role: Bureau of Prisons inmate No. 43355-018.

He surrendered shortly before noon today at a federal prison in Pennsylvania where he will serve a three-year sentence for failing to file his taxes.

Traci Billingsley, chief public information officer for the Bureau of Prisons, said: "Wesley Snipes has self surrendered to the minimum-security Federal Prison Camp at the Federal Correctional Institution McKean, in Bradford, Pennsylvania."

Fellow spokesperson Ed Ross added: "He surrendered a short time ago and is now inside the facility. He'll go through an orientation process and will begin serving his sentence."

Mr. I'm Too Cool To Pay My Taxes was convicted in April 2008 of three misdemeanor counts of willful failure to file income taxes and has spent the last two years unsuccessfully trying to appeal the ruling.

Don't drop the soap man!
