Except for the awful one-time spelling of the word chrisps (sic), like this.
I'm not usually one to revel in the misery of other people, but I would be lying if I said this hasn't had me pissing myself all day
The CEO of Turing pharmaceuticals who made headlines for trying to jack up the price of a life-saving drug from $13.50 to $750 was arrested on charges that stem from his time as CEO of biotech firm Retrophin Inc.
The 32-year-old entrepreneur made headlines in September when he raised the price of life-saving drug Daraprim from $13.50 to $750. After days public outrage, Shkreli announced he would lower the price in order to make the drug “more affordable.”
According to Bloomberg, who broke the news, Shkreli was arrested early Thursday at his home in Manhattan and charged with illegally taking stock from Retrophin Inc. and using it to pay off debts relating to his now-defunct hedge fund MSMB Captial Management.
Shkreli started Retrophin Inc. in 2011 but was ousted from the company by its board of directors in September 2014. He was later sued by the board for misuse of company funds.
Shkreli is accused of misusing Retrophin funds to allegedly pay off millions in debts to investors of MSMB Capital Management, Bloomberg reported.
Couldn't happen to a bigger tosser.

Thoughts on Shia? Is he a bit unhinged? Is he an Andy Kauffman-esque genius performer? Somewhere in between?
