Bangalore: “Bigger they are, harder they fall,” the proverb holds eternal truth and is same with these CEOs who led some of the most promising and revenue generating companies, living  envious lives but somehow with twist ended up behind bars or turned fugitives.

The recent episode of John McAfee, the antivirus pioneer, the tech tycoon, who after a massive manhunt is now imprisoned in Guatemala, and Julian Assange who is taken asylum in Ecuadorian embassy in London are such examples. There are other tech tycoons too who made it to the list of most wanted and traversed the globe in fear of imprisonment or, worse, paying back millions in reparations. Read on to know 10 such tech CEOs, who ran-in with law enforcement for tax evasions to alleged murderers, as compiled by Complex Tech.   

#10 John McAfee

Company: McAfee

Date captured: Dec. 6, 2012

John McAfee is an American computer programmer and founder of McAfee.

Anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee has been on the run for weeks, avoiding Belize police who want to question him about the death of his neighbor Gregory Faull, who was shot and killed on Nov. 11 and McAfee was labeled a "person of interest" by Belize authorities. McAfee apparently fled the country soon afterwards to avoid the police.

He was also accused of illegally sneaking into neighboring Guatemala, where he was denied political asylum and arrested, and he was rushed to the hospital following complaints of chest pains.
