John McAfee, the American anti-virus software pioneer who has been on the run from police since his neighbor was found murdered in Belize last month, has been arrested in Guatemala. McAfee, 67, was detained Wednesday at a hotel in Guatemala City and is accused of entering the country illegally, CBS News reports. Hours before his arrest, McAfee told the Associated Press that he was formally requesting asylum in Guatemala because he was being persecuted in Belize over the fatal shooting of neighbor Gregory Faull. Belize police consider McAfee a person of interest in that case. McAfee has denied any wrongdoing. Photos »
