Already having his fair share of issues with the law, things have taken a turn for the worse for Wu Tang staple, Method Man. Meth was arrested today by New York police for tax evasion. According to WABC New York, the rapper owes the government over $30,000 in taxes. Meth, real name Clifford Smith, is reportedly in police custody waiting for arraignment. He’s charged with failure to pay personal income tax and earnings and misdemeanor failure to pay taxes. He faces up to four years behind bars if convicted.

Earlier this year Meth made headlines after a woman accused of him shooting her with a pellet gun. That case is still pending.

He also faced tax issues in 2008 when his Lincoln Navigator was repossessed by the Department of Taxation.
