McAfee was apprehended by Guatemalan police Wednesday evening, after he illegally crossed into the country to seek asylum from Belizean authorities.

Prior to his rush to the hospital, he was scheduled to be deported to Belize Thursday morning, where he was wanted for questioning about the murder of his neighbor and rival, fellow American ex-pat Greg Faull.

McAfee, in an earlier interview with ABC News, denied allegations that he was abusing the drug commonly called bath salts.
