Actor Wesley Snipes has been ordered to surrender to federal authorities immediately and begin serving his three-year sentence for tax evasion.

The Blade star was found guilty of failing to file returns when he stood trial in 2008, but his lawyers appealed the verdict and he was freed on bail to challenge the ruling.

He lost the appeal in July and was due to surrender to police on September 2nd - but a U.S. District Court judge granted him a postponement pending a retrial hearing this month.

However, in court on Friday, Snipes was told he must turn himself in. The actor was not present for the hearing
