Notorious Mexican drug lord and escape artist Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is having psychological problems that could hinder his ability to fight U.S. drug-trafficking charges, his lawyer and wife said Tuesday.Guzman, who smiled and waved at his wife as he was led into court Tuesday, has repeatedly complained about conditions at a Manhattan jail where he's being held in solitary confinement.U.S. prosecutors say the harsh conditions are needed because Guzman has a history in Mexico of using his connections to run his drug empire from behind bars. In a letter to the court earlier this year, Guzman claimed that the light in his cell where he spends 23 hours a day is on at all hours.
