Warriors' Biedrins under Latvian investigation for tax evasion

CBSSports.com wire reports

RIGA, Latvia -- Latvia's state prosecutor has opened up a criminal case against Golden State Warriors center Andris Biedrins for alleged income tax evasion.

Aiga Senberga, a spokeswoman for the prosecutor's office, says Biedrins and two others are suspects in the case, though she declined to name the other two individuals.

Senberga said Monday that if Biedrins is found guilty he could face a fine equivalent to $70,000, or a maximum five-year prison sentence. She did not say how much Biedrins allegedly owes in taxes.

Latvian media are reporting that the 26-year-old Biedrins, who joined the Warriors when he was 18, has already met with prosecutors to give evidence in the case.
