Bragging About Tax Evasion on the Radio is a Bad Idea

Turns out the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) listens to the radio. At least they do in New York. So when K-Rock DJ Crazy Cabbie, otherwise known as Lee Mroszak, bragged to listeners on the Howard Stern show that he beat the government out of more than $100,000 in taxes, he was busted.

The IRS checked and, sure enough, Lee Mroszak owed them money. So much money, that he has been sentenced to 12-months in jail for tax evasion. Or maybe that’s for stupidity. Either way, Crazy Cabbie will not be hitting the airwaves for the next year.

According to the New York Daily News, who broke the story, “Cabbie said he was in contract negotiations with K-Rock and fears losing going to prison will cost him his job.” That may be good news for Mroszak: it’s hard to cheat on your taxes if you don’t have any income to tax.
