Anti-virus company founder John McAfee reportedly suffered two mild heart attacks Thursday, while being detained in Guatemala. The 67-year-old has been on the run from Belize police, who wish to question him about the murder of Gregory Faull, his San Pedro neighbor. According to Reuters, McAfee's lawyer said he suffered the heart attacks before being rushed to a Guatemala hospital Thursday. McAfee had appeared to be in good spirits, purportedly blogging from his jail cell as early as this morning. He is hoping to avoid extradition to Belize. Guatemalan authorities charged him with illegally crossing into the country. Video of the arrest has been posted to YouTube.
