Why am I not surprised?

Cody Wilson, the self-described crypto-anarchist at the center of the 3D printed gun debate, decided to fly to Taiwan — right after he learned that Austin police were investigating him for allegedly paying a 16-year-old girl for sex.
“Today Mr. Wilson is not in custody, and his last known location was Taipei, Taiwan,” Troy Officer, commander of Austin’s organized crime division, said in a press conference on Wednesday. “We also know that Mr. Wilson missed a scheduled flight back to the United States.”
Wilson did not respond to VICE News’ request for comment.
Wilson, 30, is best known for his legal battles with the government over his decision to publish blueprints for 3D-printed guns online. Now, he’s now been charged with a second-degree felony for sexual assault of a minor and, if convicted, could spend up to 20 years in prison.
Boy, these ammosexuals are such upstanding citizens, don’t you think.
Update: Got him!

Police in Taiwan have arrested Cody Wilson, the owner of a controversial 3D-printed gun company who was this week charged with sexual assault in Texas after allegedly paying to have sex with a 16-year-old girl.
Wilson, 30, was arrested at around 5 p.m. local time at a hotel in Taipei, Taiwan’s capital, police told BuzzFeed News.
He checked into the business hotel in Taipei’s Wanhua District with his actual name and passport, which was subsequently cancelled by the American Institute in Taiwan (AIT) — the de facto US embassy in Taiwan — leaving him without any legal document.
And they say there are no more happy endings.
