'El Chapo' Drug Lord Whines He Can't Sleep in Prison
'El Chapo,' the world's most notorious drug lord, whines he can't sleep in his Mexican prison because a barking guard dog keeps him up at night.
Get out your handkerchiefs. Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is having trouble sleeping at night.
It's not because of the murders he's charged with, or the millions of pounds of drugs he's accused of selling, or the human trafficking, kidnapping and extortion charges he faces in Mexico.
A dog is to blame.
The Sinaloa Cartel kingpin, accused of running the world's biggest narcotics syndicate and the widespread murders of enemies and civilians, says a barking guard dog is keeping him up.

The “boisterous" animal and prison guards who check on him every hour are disturbing his rest, he complained to his lawyer Jose Gonzalez, according to Yahoo News.
“I haven’t been able to sleep at all," the infamous trafficker told his attorney in a text delivered by a third party.
"They wake me up to take the register every hour during the day and every two hours at night, and there is a dog next to me which barks a lot and stops me sleeping," Guzman texted.
His lawyer said Guzman has not "seen his family since before he was detained."

Guzman is being held at the Altiplano maximum-security prison in Mexico state, the same facility he escaped from six months ago in a daring journey down a nearly mile-long tunnel dug underneath his cell.
It was the second time he has busted out of jail after being arrested on multiple charges including murder, narcotics and human trafficking. He has been indicted in the United States by at least six federal grand juries and is considered the biggest shipper of illegal drugs into America.
Mexican authorities say they plan to extradite Guzman to the U.S.
