Pa. teens face charges over fake kidnapping

WHITEHALL, Pa. - July 28, 2010

Police in Whitehall say the teens filmed the staged event and planned to put the video on YouTube.

Officers swarmed the parking lot of a Kmart store in Whitehall shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday after a woman reported seeing a man get tied up and thrown in the trunk of a car.

Police say they located the car a short time later and got the man out of the trunk.

But they say they quickly determined that all four people involved were teenagers videotaping a prank they planned to put on YouTube.

All four teens are charged with disorderly conduct.
