Martin Shkreli was arrested on Thursday for engaging in what is being described as a Ponzi scheme at his former hedge fund and at a separate pharmaceutical company.
Shkreli was arrested at Murray Hill Town Apartments in downtown Manhattan. He was wearing a grey hoodie and flanked by a slew of armed law enforcement officers.
Many on the internet are rejoicing at the news and #Karma has been labeled on more than a few tweets related to this story.
Here are some of the best reactions from around the web as we collectively watch this dragon be slain.
The Web was brought crashing down a bit though upon the revelation that Shkreli had been released on bail for the small sum of $5 million!
