Two Utah men were arrested for planting deadly, medieval-style booby traps along a hiking trail popular with families and college students, police said.
Benjamin Steven Rutkowski, 19, and Kai Matthew Christensen, 21, set the traps inside a crude shelter along a trail in Provo Canyon last week, the Utah County Sheriff's Office said.
Both traps were rigged with trip wire, police said.
One was designed to swing a spiked ball at the head of whoever tripped the wire, while the other would have caused someone to fall onto sharpened spikes placed in the ground, police said.
