'Pharma Bro' Martin Shkreli Isn't Exactly Lying Low After Arrest
Shortly after his arrest, former Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli live-streamed himself playing chess and browsing dating site OkCupid.
Former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli has been very active online after his arrest on fraud charges.
Shkreli tweeted: "I am confident I will prevail. The allegations against me are baseless and without merit."
Shkreli pleaded not guilty on all charges. Once released on bail, he live-streamed himself playing chess online, strumming his guitar, browsing the dating site OkCupid, and musing on life and business.
The former hedge fund manager is well-known for being the pharmaceutical CEO who raised the price of a life-saving drug more than 5,000 percent. Shkreli resigned from Turing Pharmaceuticals following his arrest. (Video via Bloomberg)
The charges against him stem from his time at drug company Retrophin. Shkreli is accused of taking stock from his former company to pay off "unrelated business dealings."
Retrophin ousted Shkreli last year. The company also investigated and eventually sued Shkreli for possible corrupt trading practices and alleged fake consulting deals with investors who lost money on Retrophin.
