Utah teens' naked run inspired by 'American Pie'

Published:

OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Four Utah teens armed with a BB gun told deputies they were inspired by a scene from an "American Pie" movie when they went running naked through an Ogden-area neighborhood.

Authorities said Wednesday the teens were spotted streaking in the residential community about 45 minutes north of Salt Lake City at about 2 a.m. Sunday.

When a deputy responded, a 17-year-old girl ducked behind a tree, while the three teenage boys kept running and were found shortly after.

The teens said they brought the BB gun because they feared they would be attacked by deer during the jog.

Deputies notified the teens' parents and let them off with a warning.

The 2006 film "American Pie: The Naked Mile" features a high school student who wants to join a college campus' tradition of running a mile naked.
