When authorities in Woods Cross tried to pull Owen over, the 46-year-old sped off and headed south toward Salt Lake City.

The chase continued until officers spiked Owen's tires and he ditched the vehicle.

After hiding in a church overnight in a standoff with cops, Owen ended up calling police for help after he got stuck inside the building's boiler room.

Officials went into the church after making sure he was not armed, and took him into custody. He faces a slew of charges.
