Eccentric software tycoon John McAfee, wanted in Belize for questioning in the shooting death of his neighbor, has been arrested in Guatemala for entering the country illegally, his Guatemala attorney told ABC News.
Before McAfee’s arrest, he told ABC News in an exclusive interview he would be seeking asylum in Guatemala. McAfee was arrested by the Central American country’s immigration police and not the national police, said his attorney, who was confident his client would be released within hours.
John didn’t cross the border, the border crossed him.
