Pokemon GO Player Hits Cop Car, Captured On Camera

Don't Pokemon 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 Pokemon 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 Pokemon GO and drive. A lot worse things can happen.

    IDIOT used Sideswipe!

    It wasn't every effective...

      Policecar used Crunch! It was super effective!

        Policeman used Play Nice!
        The target's Attack fell!

    Makes me feel better he didnt try and palm it off as something else, admitting the fault defuses alot of situations.

    This isn't so much a Pokemon GO thing as a continually befuddling example of people still not accepting that you don't use your mobile while driving - period.

    That's nothing. I saw a lady the other day driving the wrong way around a car park while watching a Chinese soap opera on a dash-mounted tablet. The mind boggles.

    I once saw a lady (I was on the train) driving on the freeway eating a bowl of cereal steering the car with her elbows.

    People feel safe and indestructible in cars and do stupid shit

    How is the game dumb, if the player does stupid sh*t? The gmae has made Nintendo's value DOUBLE (now Nintendo is more valued then sony).
    The game is to be played while walking/jogging NOT DRIVING.

    I get that the reason we are warned against playing the game while driving is for public safety, but the people that are gonna play it while driving arent the people that pay attention to warnings anyway. Bring on natural selection I say. The popullation needs a little thinning out.

    I still get the vibe that this video is a fake. The way the camera pans to get a perfect view of the police car just before it's hit, the way the driver gets out holding the phone out.....
