A sometimes-suggestive YouTube video of what appears to be a wild party at an area park had some residents talking Thursday.

TEMPLE (June 14, 2012)—A 17-minute YouTube video of a Memorial Day party at Temple’s Lake Park on Lake Belton that shows some partygoers drinking, dancing suggestively, baring their breasts and in at least once instance smoking marijuana, had some residents talking Thursday.

In one scene, a young boy can be seen on a man’s shoulders in the background.

The Army Corps of Engineers said Thursday the party video was the result of an unauthorized “Girls Gone Wild” taping and called the incident a fluke.

The “Girls Gone Wild” crew did not have permits, the corps said.

Corps of Engineers personnel and Temple police officers cleared out the crowd, the corps said.

"The behaviors exhibited in the video could be seen as provocative. However, for most of the video's run-time, blatant violations of the law aren't seen. We have plans through the Summer to utilize extra officers to patrol the park during peak times...including the Independence Day holiday," Temple Police Sergeant Brad Hunt said.

Girls Gone Wild said Thursday it sponsored an event at a club in Killeen, but would neither confirm nor deny it was connected to the lakeside party.

The popular park on the westernmost edge of Temple is a day-use area with picnic sites, a swimming beach, boat ramps, a pavilion and a children’s playground.
