Now that Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán has escaped from prison in Mexico, he's regaining an infamous title some 2,000 miles away in Chicago.

The Chicago Crime Commission says that it will formally restore El Chapo's title as Chicago's Public Enemy No. 1.

The non-governmental body first applied that label to Guzmán in 2013 to highlight how his Sinaloa cartel dominates Chicago's drugs trade. The city is also a key transit hub for Sinaloa's U.S.-wide distribution.

The only other figure deemed worthy of the title of Public Enemy No. 1 by the group was gangster Al Capone in the 1930s.

The commission struck Guzmán from the list after his 2014 capture, but says his weekend escape through a tunnel returns him to the top of the list.
