Moments before tying the knot, a suspected member of the 'Clan del Golfo' drug cartel is arrested at his wedding in a church in Antioquia, Colombia. Luis Daniel Santana, alias 'Machete', has been wanted by authorities since 2017 and had allegedly been avoiding them in the mountains of Antioquia, but intelligence officers determined that the 24-year-old would come out of hiding to attend his wedding.
