Martin Shkreli arrested

No, not for his outrageous behavior in buying up older meds including one to treat AIDS and then raising the price:

From Wikipedia:

"Shkreli received widespread criticism when Turing obtained the manufacturing license for Daraprim, and raised its price by 5,500 percent (from $13.50 to $750 per tablet).

but for an unrelated fraud case. (as if the preceding wasn't shady enough! And note the name of his company "Turing" Pharmaceuticals. Guess which "Turing" the company was probably named after!)
