LAS VEGAS (AP) - A former Las Vegas strip club owner who served prison time for a federal tax evasion conviction seven years ago has been indicted again on charges he tried to evade paying more than $2.5 million in taxes from 2006-11.

Federal agents arrested Rick Rizzolo Wednesday after a grand jury indicted him on two counts of attempt to evade and defeat payment of employment and income taxes.

He's scheduled to make an initial court appearance before a U.S. magistrate in Las Vegas Thursday. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison and $500,000 in fines.

The indictment accuses Rizzolo of trying to evade paying taxes he owed for 2000, 2002 and 2006 by lying to the Internal Revenue Service and hiding funds and property in the names of others.
