Method Man Arrested Over Tax Bill
Tax problems have finally caught up with Wu-Tang Clan rapper Method Man, who turned himself in today (October 5), to the Staten Island District Attorney on felony charges related to a back tax bill.
Method Man, born Clifford Smith, surrendered to officials at the Staten Islands D.A. office around 8:00 am this morning (October 5).
The rapper faces felony charges for failing to pay back taxes in the amount of $32,799 dating back to 2004.
In March, Method Mans Lincoln Navigator was repossessed when the rapper was $52,503 in debt to the IRS.
The rapper claimed he suffered from memory loss - due to his penchant for smoking marijuana - as the reason he did not pay his taxes.
In addition to the back money, representatives for the IRS also claim Method Man has not paid his taxes in at least three years.
