More bad new for Bobby Shmurda.
There was a glimmer of hope that Bobby would finally get the bail he’s been so desperately seeking, but that dream ended when the one person who wanted to shell out the dough was arrested himself. Talk about irony.
Martin Shkreli is a pharmaceutical executive who had many people calling him an evil madman when he inflated the price of HIV treatment from $13.50 per pill to $750 for just one pill! He also just flaunted his wealth by buying the recent one-of-one Once Upon A Time In Shaolin Wu-Tang album for $2 million. But now, instead of spending money on pricey items, he’s spending time behind bars.
Shkreli was arrested Thursday morning in Manhattan for securities fraud. According to Bloomberg, Martin was illegally taking stock from a biotech firm he started, and using it to pay off debts from other business deals.
