Mexican federal forces arrested a man suspected of being a Sinaloa drug cartel member from Chihuahua in the middle of a baptism ceremony inside a church.

The dramatic arrest of Jose Bryan Salgueiro Zepeda on Friday evening during a baptismal Mass at a church in Culiacán, Sinaloa, was filmed on a viral video.

Salgueiro, reportedly known as "El 90," is allegedly a leader in the family-run Salgueiro crime organization in Chihuahua affiliated with the Sinaloa cartel, the Chihuahua attorney general's office said.

The video clip shows two couples standing before an altar as a priest speaks off camera during the baptism rite as masked agents quickly walk up from behind.

"Do you renounce Satan? Do you renounce all of his seductions?" the priest asks in Spanish during the rite just before an agent grabs Salgueiro by an arm and pulls him away.

Jose Bryan Salgueiro Zepeda, who is accused of being a leader in "Los Salgueiro" crime family, is escorted off a Mexican air force plane after landing in Chihuahua City following his arrest Friday during a baptism in a church in Culiacan, Sinaloa.

Mexican news media reported that the other man at the ceremony is a nephew of imprisoned Sinaloa cartel kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. The second man was not arrested.

After being detained, Bryan Salgueiro allegedly identified himself as a Sinaloa cartel lieutenant belonging to "Los Salgueiro" organization, the Chihuahua attorney general's office said in a statement.
