Capture of Joaquín "el Chapo" Guzmán

After more than a decade on the run, notorious drug kingpin Joaquín "el Chapo" Guzmán was captured by Mexican authorities on Saturday. Guzmán, the head of the powerful and violent Sinaloa Drug Cartel, was listed as Public Enemy #1 by the Chicago Crime Commission. The Sinaloa cartel is believed to be the main supplier of narcotics to the Chicago area. We hear from the head of the Commission on Guzmán's arrest, and the chances that he'll ever be brought to trial in Chicago where he was indicted in 2009 on numerous charges by federal authorities.
