Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Has Been Captured

News is developing, but Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been captured after months on the lam. Mexican president Pena Nieto tweeted, “Mission accomplished: we have him. I want to inform Mexicans Joaquin Guzman Loera has been arrested”. You will recall that Guzman orchestrated a daring prison escape 6 months ago in which he had cronies dig a tunnel under the prison and escaped through a hole in the floor. In spite of a massive manhunt, El Chapo eluded Mexican authorities for months. Several times they almost caught him but he would somehow escape.

So, how did they catch this guy who is basically a Mexican super villain? Vanity. He was trying to recruit actors and producers for a biopic of himself he wanted to create. Basically, he was jealous of the hoopla around the Pablo Escobar series Narcos on Netflix and wanted one on himself. When he started reaching out to actors he wanted cast in the film and possible production staff it gave away his position in the town of Los Mochis. Federal troops then swooped in and arrested him. It just goes to show you that like any classic story the hero, (or anti-hero in this case), is brought down by hubris.
