Two-time Indianapolis 500 champion Helio Castroneves is expected to appear in federal court today after he was indicted on multiple counts of tax evasion Thursday in Miami.
Castroneves, a 33-year-old Brazilian who owns a home in South Florida, is charged with failing to report $5.5 million in income to the Internal Revenue Service from 1999 to 2002. Also named in the indictment were his sister Kati, who serves as his manager, and attorney Alan R. Miller.
Castroneves won the 500 in 2001 and ’02. He became a national celebrity last year when he won television’s “Dancing With the Stars” competition.
