McAfee Admits Playing Sick, Crazy To Win Release

Better than jail, right?


The antics of security software founder John McAfee may have seemed pretty insane, but he now says that at least some of his actions were a ruse.

McAfee, speaking with ABC News after arriving in the U.S., said he faked an illness to avoid being sent back to Belize from Guatemala, and he also thanked the media for closely covering his story.

"It was a deception but who did it hurt? I look pretty healthy, don't I?," he said during an interview with ABC at a Miami Beach hotel.
