Jail Birds

So what is the currently-jailed Ambassador Bridge and Train Station owner, Matty Moroun, worth anyway? His estimated net worth was $1.5 billion when Forbes magazine ran the September 2011 list of richest Americans. The 84-year-old's main business is trucking but he also owns dozens of companies across many countries and industries, including insurance and communications. Says the news, "Moroun has been called reclusive at best and a slumlord at worst, among other epithets." Now we can just call him an inmate. [The Detroit News]
