|Higgs with the corpus delicti.|
Given the limited information, one should not jump into conclusions. Higgs might have been a victim of a set-up: it is odd that two British physicists get arrested in Buenos Aires one after another in such similar circumstances. But, maybe, we should pose ourselves the question whether there exists a deeper relationship between the cocaine trade and theoretical particle physics? The recent dramatic events (and some of the particle physics literature too) certainly make such a relationship plausible.
I will update on this story as soon as new facts come to life.
Evening update: This article is an April Fools joke, one in a very bad taste as typical for this blog. Consequently, the current head count of 1 theoretical particle physicist in Argentinian jails remains up to date. So far. On the other hand, I think the idea of smuggling cocaine in plush models of elementary particles is absolutely brilliant :-)
