'El Brad Pitt' -- Arrested for Killing People In Mexico

6/17/2011 5:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"El Brad Pitt" is one bad muchacho ... so says the Mexican government -- which arrested the alleged cartel member yesterday for killing a bunch of people.

Of course, "El Brad Pitt" is just an alias for Marco Antonio Guzman -- who's accused of leading a super violent wing of the Juarez drug cartel in Mexico.

"El Brad Pitt" reportedly got his nickname because he would often dress like Brad's character in the movie "Spy Game" ... wearing a baseball cap, long hair and a camera around his neck to blend in as a tourist.

However, El Brad Pitt and Real Brad Pitt seem to share the same penchant for film -- Guzman allegedly carried out one killing on camera and then uploaded it to a video sharing website.

No bueno.

How much were you paid to post kiss behind story, TMZ? you can now expect more of these terrorists--because that is what they really are, terrorists--getting more Hollywood nicknames because TMZ will now make a story about them. These drug dealer animals rape and kill every women and children they see on the streets, just READ the real news people and you will know it,,, way to go TMZ.

Who would want to go to Mexico until all these drug guys are dead--afraid of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Brad Pitt needs to sue 'El Brad Pitt' for using his name. Brad may never be able to go to Mexico again but such is life.

At least Mexican dude is current.
It would be really sad if the guy was 20 years behind with his name choices.
El Jean Claude Van Dam or El Chuck Norris or El anyone else that was in The Expendables.
