Utah's So-Called Mountain Man Arrested

After eluding Utah law enforcement -- and allegedly breaking into rural cabins -- for five years, Troy James Knapp, 45, is now behind bars.

He's formally charged with crimes in three different Utah counties.

But authorities are continuing to investigate many other incidents they believe he is responsible for.

Authorities say the suspect was tracked to a rural cabin, near Ferrin Reservoir.  Public Safety helicopters were used in the arrest.

Shots were fired during the arrest -- but police say there were no injuries.
