Martin Shkreli, the medical drug entrepreneur who caused controversy after jacking up the price of a life-saving HIV drug by more than 5,000%, was arrested Thursday on charges of securities fraud. Many netizens, however, are paying more attention to the men who arrested him.

Many online have compared the agent to Shkreli’s right in the photos to actor Wentworth Miller from “Prison Break,” points out the Daily Dot.
Shkreli most recently made headlines for his purchase of the lone copy of the Wu-Tang Clan’s “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin” album for $2 million. Reuters reports that some are hoping his arrest means the album, which he says he purchased “to keep it from people,” will have to be forfeited.
