Has someone been waltzing away with the government's money?
Hélio Castroneves, the former Indy 500 racing champ who won the fifth season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars, is in a heap of trouble today after the feds obtained an indictment against him for failing to pay millions in taxes from 1999 to 2004.
The Brazilian-born Castroneves, 33, along with his sister, Katiucia, 35, and his Ohio-based lawyer, Alan Miller, 71, face conspiracy and tax-evasion charges for hatching a tax-dodging scheme using an offshore shell corporation based in Panama to hide upwards of $5.5 million from the Internal Revenue Service. (View the indictment.)
And with the current financial crisis, you had to figure the feds were going to come calling.
