Federal prosecutors in Florida are tired of waiting for Wesley to do his time for tax evasion.  They're asking the judge to "immediately revoke Wesley Trent Snipes's bail and order him to surrender."

Snipes was convicted in May 2008 for evading $12,000,000 in taxes.

It's about time!!! Who but a rich person would get 2+ years to be out of prison to appeal his case?!?! He was found guilty. It's time to go to the pokey. At least, he will not get out way early like a female in California would.

Gena, The answer is "Yes". Per ContactMusicdotcom:
Actor WESLEY SNIPES has been exposed as the abusive ex-lover of HALLE BERRY, who struck the actress so hard, she lost most of the hearing in her right ear.
Have a fine time in prison, Wes.

Of course they want him in jail now. This is Obama's government. Taxes are the Statists lifeblood. When a Statist is in charge they won't take it lightly.

Wesley Snipes said black women have too much attitude. Guess he thought the IRS had too much attitude too, for him to pay up.
He was wrong on both counts. He isn't above the Government and he forgot a Black woman gave birth to him. Its lonely at the top.

I agree with #17.
Notice that Mr. Snipes career went down the toilet when he made negative comments about black women. He forgot that we were the ones paying the money to see his movies.
