ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Actor Wesley Snipes' attendance at a lavish
party in Dubai is getting him in trouble.
U.S. attorneys in Ocala have asked a judge to restrict his
travel outside the United States because Snipes attended a $20
million party last November for the opening of the $1.5 billion
Atlantis Hotel resort.
A jury convicted the action star last year of three counts of
willfully failing to file his income taxes. Snipes is free on bond
while he appeals the convictions and his three-year prison sentence
to the 11th Circuit Court in Atlanta.
The federal prosecutors say his bond should be revoked too.
A federal judge last year said Snipes could only travel to
London and Bangkok for work on movies.
