(Scroll down for video) A sex scandal shocked the Christian community in Michigan, after a popular radio personality was arrested.

John Balyo, 35, who is the host of the Christian radio station in Grand Rapids, was arrested on child sex charges after investigators with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement linked him to a case of human trafficking, authorities said.

Balyo is accused of paying 41-year-old Ronald Lee Moser, to arrange sexual encounters with underage boys.

Moser was arrested earlier this month, after federal agents raided his home and found him living with a 12-year-old boy. He also had a stash of child pornography in his home, authorities said.

Moser ran a website that allowed customers to pay for sex with underage boys. The website led investigators to Balyo.

The morning host at the WCSG radio station was fired from his job after his arrest. Baylo was handcuffed and taken into custody while working at the Christian music festival in Gaylord on Friday.

He was charged with criminal sexual conduct in the first degree.
