Pokémon Go Player Crashes Into Cop Car, Captured On Camera

Illustration for article titled Pokémon Go Player Crashes Into Cop Car, Captured On Camera

Don’t Pokémon Go and drive. You’ll do something stupid. Like crash into a police car.

The Baltimore Police Department posted this video earlier today, showing a guy—who instantly told the cops he had his eyes down playing Pokémon Go—driving straight into a parked police car.

Everyone was OK, and the cops seemed awfully nice about the whole thing. Note the guy not even trying to hide it; he gets straight out of the car with the game still running in his hand.

Funny video, but for real, don’t Pokémon Go and drive. A lot worse things can happen.
