[There was a video here]

New video of the early-morning El Chapo raid shows the billionaire drug kingpin initially managed to escape the deadly shootout, tunneling out of the building through a manhole, where he apparently stole a car and tried to flee the city.

CNN aired almost 30 seconds of the purportedly hour-long video, which shows authorities exchanging gunfire with El Chapo’s soldiers before launching grenades into the house.

“Apparently he had a number of his hitmen receiving the Mexican soldiers while he was escaping through the back of the house. He got into the sewer system in the city of Los Mochis and was able to come to the surface and then he stole a car but was later detained and arrested by the Mexican federal police,” Rafael Romo explained Monday.

All that, and he still got brought down by Sean Penn.
