PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — The teenage stars of Port St. Lucie's contribution to the trove of YouTube videos dedicated to "ghost-riding" hip-hop slang for dancing on top of a car as it moves slowly down the road won some recognition Thursday.

After Port St. Lucie police found the two-minute clip while searching the popular video-sharing Web site, they traced the car to its owner and arrested two boys, a 16- and 17-year-old, at Treasure Coast High School Thursday morning.
 
The teens were to spend the night in juvenile detention and will face charges of culpable negligence, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and child abuse.
