Domestic Terrorist Caught 10 Years Ago In North Carolina Mountains

Ten years ago today, one of the largest federal manhunts ended in North Carolina with the arrest of Eric Rudolph.

Rudolph ended up pleading guilty to a series of attacks including the bombings of Atlanta's 1996 Olympic festivities, an abortion clinic and lesbian bar in the same city, and an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama.

A rookie police officer in Murphy apprehended the fugitive behind a grocery store before dawn on May 31st, 2003. He was unarmed and did not resist arrest.

Authorities say they spent $24 million trying to catch the man who is now serving four consecutive life sentences.
