He’s been booked before, but a video released Wednesday is the first to show Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman being fingerprinted, standing for a mugshot and giving a blood sample.

The 19-minute video released by the Mexican attorney general’s office shows the head of the Sinaloa cartel signing documents and being questioned after his latest capture.

It shows facial comparisons using mugshots from Guzman’s first arrest in 1993 and the capo’s arrest on January 8 when the Mexican navy raided a safe house where he and another 11 people, presumably associates, were hiding.

The video authorities sent to news outlets narrates with great detail how “El Chapo” escaped from prison last July from the El Altiplano maximum security prison in Almoloya de Juarez.
