Pokémon Go Player Crashes Into Cop Car, Captured On Camera

Illustration for article titled iPokémon Go/i 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.
