Pharma CEO Martin Shkreli was arrested on the morning of December 17th on charges of security fraud. He first gained notoriety back in September, after raising the price of a life-saving AIDS drug from $13.50 to $750 a pill.
Shkreli also became a divisive figure on social media. He frequently hosted hours-long livestreams on his YouTube channel where he could be seen playing video games and discussing the pharmaceutical industry.
In a stream held the night before his arrest, he may have received a phone call from an FBI agent. During the stream, Shkreli is seen hanging up and responding “yeah, yeah, yeah.” We can’t be sure if this was a prank call or not, though.
