A teenager's prank shut down a ride at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

Our media partners at the Santa Cruz Sentinel report that a 16-year-old from Stockton was on the new "Haunted Castle" ride when he pulled a tablecloth off a prop and onto the tracks.

The cloth on the tracks made two of the ride's cars crash.

No one was hurt, but police estimate there was $5,000 in damage.

Officers booked the teen on vandalism charges.
