Kids' party gets more than it bargained for

Police aren’t filing charges against a father who briefly played a pornographic video instead of the Smurfs at his child’s birthday party.

Tremonton police chief Dave Nance told the Standard-Examiner of Ogden the man had rented a copy of the Smurfs from a kiosk and loaded the disc into his laptop. But when he turned the projector on for the children, pornographic images flashed on the screen.

Authorities got involved when the father complained somebody had tampered with the DVD. Police found nothing wrong, saying the porn was probably on the laptop.

Nance says officials aren’t pursuing charges because the incident was apparently an accident.

The Smurfs was released in 2011 and features animated blue creatures that are chased into New York City by an evil wizard.—Sapa-AP
