Price-gouging CEO Martin Shkreli, also known as “the most hated man in America,” was arrested by the FBI for a “ponzi-like scheme” he carried out at an old job he got fired from in 2014.  

He was arrested at the Murray Hill Tower Apartments in midtown this morning. Here are photos of him leaving federal court, escorted by the FBI, on Thursday, interspersed with some of the tweets that inspired the strong negative feelings that had many people cheering like the SEC was the Avengers and Shkreli was a supervillain this morning.
