PENNSYLVANIA (BBC)Hollywood star Wesley Snipes has been released from prison in the US after serving time for

not paying his taxes. The 50-year-old actor was jailed in Pennsylvania in 2010 for failing to file income tax returns. He'll

now remain under house arrest for the next four months in order to complete the three year sentence he was handed.

Snipes has starred in dozens of films but is most famous for the Blade trilogy about a vampire hunter.

US prosecutors

say the actor failed to file returns for at least a decade and owed millions of dollars in taxes.
