Stephen Baldwin Arrested, Faces 4 Years in PrisonSubmit Comment
Stephen Baldwin (Usual Suspects) has just been arrested in New York for failure to file personal income taxes, which is considered a felony. According to the Rockland County District Attorney, the actor failed to pay taxes for 2008, 2009, and 2010, owing over $350,000 to the state of NY.

"At a time when Rockland County and New York State face severe fiscal shortfalls, we cannot afford to allow wealthy residents to break the law by cheating on their taxes," said the DA. "The defendant's repetitive failure to file returns and pay taxes over a period of several years contributes to the sweeping cutbacks and closures in local government and in our schools."

This isn't the first time the actor has had money trouble. He filed for bankruptcy in 2009. Baldwin is now due in court in February. If convicted, he faces up to 4 years in prison.
