Helio Castroneves Indicted on Tax Fraud

by at . Comments

From Dancing with the Stars to Shanking with the Inmates?

Race car driver and former reality TV champion Helio Castroneves has been indicted on tax fraud.

Castroneves has been accused of siphoning millions of dollars in income to a Panamanian shell company from 1999 to 2004. Sounds complicated, and shady.

The Dancing with the Stars season five winner will appear in a Miami court today to face charges of conspiracy and tax evasion. If convicted of all charges, he faces a maximum penalty of 35 years in prison. Yikes!

With those looks and this dancing background, Helio may be in serious trouble during any prison shower. We're just sayin.
