TV Practical Joker Taken to Court

A member of the production staff of the Swedish version of the hit British TV series ”Balls of Steel” is facing a court battle after she sprayed Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt with water as part of a practical joke.

The joke came at the end of a fake interview on the red carpet at a film premier in May.

Prosecuters have now decided to take the woman to court for harassment. A spokesman for the Prime Minister says that he will not comment on the case as it is a police matter.

The practical joke gone wrong caused major discussions in Sweden at the time, and public broadcaster Swedish Television has now decided to drop the program from its schedule, before a single episode has been broadcast.
