Prosecutor: 2 former Utah attorneys general arrested in bribery investigation.

Authorities say two former Utah attorneys general have been arrested as part of a bribery investigation.

Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill said John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff were taken into custody Tuesday.

Jail records show both were booked on charges of receiving or soliciting a bribe, among other counts.

Swallow and Shurtleff's attorneys did not answer after-hours calls Tuesday morning.

The arrests come more than 14 months after two county attorneys began scrutinizing Shurtleff and Swallow's relationships with several businessmen in trouble with regulators.

Shurtleff left office in January 2013 after a dozen years as Utah's top law enforcement officer.

His successor and former chief deputy, Swallow, resigned after less than a year as attorney general. Both have denied wrongdoing throughout the investigation.
