He has been arrested and imprisoned several times.
I know. I figured with his wealth and the corruption in Mexico he'd have advance notice of any potential operations to capture him due to having enough people on his payroll, and figured he'd have enough fire power to fight off any attempts. Apparently he was a little over confident, and his bodyguards (at least 5) got taken out.
US wants him in the supermax in Colorado. Time is ticking.
