One young man in Baltimore has got to be feeling pretty embarrassed after he was caught on video crashing into a police car while playing Pokemon Go. Thankfully, no one was physically hurt–it’s just egos that were bruised. The whole thing happened after a pair of officers who had just responded to a call were headed back to their police vehicle. They then heard, saw and captured on their bodycams a teenager sideswiping their car.
Quick Lesson Time!!! Personally, I’m not so sure that it was such a good idea to tell the officers that you had been playing Pokemon Go. As we’ve said before, talking to the police without a lawyer present is a recipe for added charges. Now instead of just a car accident, the BPD could charge him with a distracted driving charge.
This is the second car crashed involved with the hit game Pokemon Go. The first one happened when a distracted driver crashed into a tree.
