Pokémon GO player drives into a cop car while gaming

Remember people: Don't Pokemon Go and drive. <br> Image source: Kotaku.

Just when we though the antics of Pokémon GO players couldn’t get any funnier (or worse), one player in the U.S. actually did something really stupid: play Pokémon GO while driving, and then crashing right into a cop car.

As reported by Kotaku, the player was driving down the street somewhere in the city of Baltimore, all the while fixated to his phone that was down near his dashboard. Naturally, with his concentration focused completely on the phone, he obviously wasn’t keeping his eyes on the road, and before he knew it, he ran his car straight into the side of a stationary cop car.

While the cops were actually being very nice about the whole situation, the highlight was that the guilty driver didn’t even try to hide the fact that he was playing the game.

The (very obvious) lesson of this story? Don’t play Pokémon GO while driving, lest you end up getting into a far worse situation than the driver in this story.
