Snipes must check in to Federal Correctional Institution McKean by noon on that date or face additional charges, the Orlando Sentinel reported on Wednesday.

The actor, who ironically was on the run from authorities in the 1998 action-thriller film U.S. Marshals, also starred in the Blade trilogy, White Men Can't Jump and Jungle Fever.  He was convicted in 2008 of not paying taxes on more than $30 million in income.
