STOCKHOLM, Sweden, July 26 (UPI) -- A traveler tried to check in a dwarf in a suitcase at the airport in Stockholm as a joke for a television show, officials said.

The airport called police Wednesday but it turned out to be a prank for a television show called "Balls of Steel," Sweden's TT news agency reported..

"It was a stupid prank that scared the airport staff but no law has been broken," said police spokeswoman Yvonne Lindholm.

The "Balls of Steel" program became notorious last year when a reporter sprayed water into the face of Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt as part of a spoof interview.
