John McAfee's legs must real tired, because he's been running from the law for almost a month!
The McAfee AntiVirus software pioneer was arrested Wednesday in Guatemala for entering the country illegally after fleeing his residence in Belize to escape from cops he claims were dirty and sent to kill him.
After John's Belizean neighbor was shot, local officials ransacked the computer guru's house to either question him about the mysterious murder or gun him down in cold-blood — depending on which side you believe.
Since going into hiding, John kept in semi-constant touch with his contacts in the States, assuring them his location must remain secret and that his life was in danger.
Now the 67-year-old is being detained by Interpol agents in an upscale part of Guatemala City until they figure out what to do with him!
His lawyer is fighting against any extradition, arguing John's life will be forfeit should they forcibly returned him to Belize!
Yikes!! A cray-cray situation!
There are few vacation spots we'd relish less than a Central America jail cell!
