Mafia boss, Montella Ruso Anthonio, who was on the run from police has been arrested after he repented and was baptised, and the video went viral on YouTube. As part of the ceremony to wash away sin, he was taken into the sea off the Italian coast of Pinetamare and immersed under the water by the priest.
Police saw the video which was posted online by the pastor, and they were able to identify the region, and the pastor. From there were able to quickly capture Montella by finding out from other parishioners where he was staying in the commune of Villaricca near Naples.
He had gone on the run after being convicted and jailed of being a Mafia boss and for drug trafficking, Mirror UK reports.
Parishioner Adelmo Iadanza said:
"He seemed like a nice man, I am sure there must have been a mistake. He kept himself very much to himself, but was always in church at the weekend."
Police said he would remain in custody before being sent back to the capital Rome to start his five-year jail term that been suspended while he was on the run.
