MEXICO CITY - Federal authorities have detained an
ex-police officer accused of leading the armed wing of the Juarez
Cartel in northern Mexico.

Marco Antonio Guzman was captured Wednesday in the U.S. border
state of Chihuahua along with two alleged accomplices. Guzman is
known by several aliases, including "El Brad Pitt."

He was brought to the Mexican capital Thursday and paraded
before the news media.

Police say Guzman was involved in the car bombing of a Ciudad
Juarez federal police station in July.

They also accuse him of being involved in drug-trafficking
operations across Chihuahua. The state is one of the worst-affected
areas of the drug war, with an estimated 3,000 people killed in
2010 alone.
