“El Chapo”, After Being Arrested

Six months after his incredible escape from prison through a tunnel, Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera has been arrested.  Authorities were finally able to apprehend El Chapo after an early morning raid on a motel.  Five gangsters were killed in a shootout, and including El Chapo, six were arrested.  A Marine sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

“El Cholo”, the right side man to El Chapo, was also arrested in the raid.  Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto wrote on Twitter, “Mission accomplished.  We have him.”  It is unclear whether El Chapo will be extradited to the United States, where he faces multiple drug trafficking charges.
