When notorious drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was captured by Mexican marines during a raid in the town of Los Mochis, in the kingpin’s home state of Sinaloa, on Friday, he was wearing a dirty vest and looking the worse for wear, with several scratches on his arms.

His appearance immediately caused some hilarity on Twitter – where his pigpen-ish look drew snarky speculation that he was hiding out in a dorm room or wearing Kanye West’s clothing line.

Despite Forbes magazine once saying the kingpin was a billionaire, he looked more like a pauper after the raid.

El Chapo had reportedly escaped from his hiding house, and then fled into a dirty sewer with an accomplice.

After emerging into the street, he was able to steal a car and drive off, before finally being apprehended. Five cartel members reportedly died during the capture.

The twice-escaped from prison drug lord reportedly responsible for at least a quarter of the cocaine that comes into the U.S. was then hauled off to a cheap hotel and held while cops waited for backup.
