YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) - Police in Youngstown are trying to deal with unruly teens who form human chains across the street and taunt drivers to hit them.

Police have gotten several similar reports and say each time the teens dispersed before officers arrived.

One newspaper editor at The Youngstown Vindicator says teens pounded their fists on her car while she frantically dialed 9-1-1.

One school security officer fears panicked motorists may drive through the human chains to escape.

Youngstown police plan to add extra patrols near affected areas. The chief said he's considering videotaping large groups of teens for identification purposes.
