Hernandez was apprehended Monday in Normal, Ill., after a failed suicide attempt, the Tribune reported.
Hernandez disappeared after federal authorities accused him in civil court of running a Ponzi scheme that bilked more than 100 investors out of $12 million. Last week, his highly-publicized Internet radio venture with Mike North called Chicago Sports Webio, collapsed. Payroll checks bounced. Hernandez didn't return calls. And Mike North started making noise in the media, calling Hernandez a con man.
Hernandez is accused of mail fraud.
