Drug Boss, Nicknamed After Brad Pitt, Arrested in Mexico
If you didn't believe Hollywood was influential, think again.
Mexican federal plice on Thursday said they had arrested crime boss Marco Guzman, 34, of the Juarez drug cartel, Reuters reports. That's all fine, but here's the kicker. His alias was "El Brad Pitt" (another alias was "El Dos").
"It's a name given to the man by his associates. I guess they think he looks like him," a spokesperson for the federal police told Reuters, in reference to the A-list actor Pitt.
A photo that was taken after Guzman had been arrested showed that his nose appeared to be similar to Pitt's. Guzman had slightly receding dark black hair, dark eyes and a goatee beard.
Mexican drug gang members usually have interesting aliases, one of the oddest being "El Winnie Pooh."
Guzman was arrested with two others in the state capital of Chihuahua in connection with murders, kidnapping and police attacks.
Certainly makes you wonder.
