Wesley Snipes is the star of the Blade trilogy
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.
Millions of dollars
US prosecutors say the actor failed to file returns for at least a decade and owed millions of dollars in taxes.
It's not known where exactly he'll stay while under house arrest. At the time of his conviction he lived in a suburb of Orlando in Florida.
However, documents show he'll be under the supervision of the New York Community Corrections Office, which oversees people in the Bronx and Brooklyn areas of New York, as well as New Jersey.
At the time of his conviction in April 2008, prosecutors said Snipes had earned more than $37m (£24m) in gross income.
