Police trumped the giant dinosaur and the clown at one 5-year-old's birthday party in Wyoming, Minn. this weekend.

Joshua Harwell said Sgt. Lance Beardsley happened to be driving by his son's birthday party, noticed all the kids in the front yard and stopped to let them investigate his squad car and take pictures together. He even turned on his lights -- much to the delight of the kids.

"He was the highlight of the party even over the dino and clown," Harwell wrote in an email to Fox 9.
