Utah National Guard investigated over risque video
SALT LAKE CITY - The Utah National Guard says several of its members took part in a risque video shot featuring bikini-clad women firing high-powered weapons after a senior official gave them permission even though he shouldn't have.
Lt. Col. Steven Fairbourn said Friday afternoon their initial investigation has found part of the video was shot at Camp Williams with some Guard equipment as backdrops.
He said no National Guard weapons or ammo were used in the film.
The agency is considering discipline for the people involved, who Fairbourn said used poor judgment. He apologized on behalf of the National Guard for any embarrassment it has caused.
The video is a promotional behind the scenes look at how they shot this year's "Hot Shots Calendar."
The Utah Department of Public Safety is also investigating the participation of its officers.
