By now, the Pokémon Go craze has spread almost everywhere in the nation, including Baltimore. While this popular game - which requires players to capture animated Pokémon characters projected on their cellphone screens amid the player's actual surroundings - has coaxed countless kids and adults off the couch, it has also gotten several people injured. In fact, the internet is rife with stories of people walking into traffic, trees and even off rocky ledges as they try to catch Pokémon on their cellphones.
Sadly, it was only a matter of time until drivers started getting in on the act, as illustrated by a recent car accident involving a Pokémon Go player and a cop car. According to a report by USA Today - and supported by police body-camera video - the driver slammed his vehicle into a Baltimore Police cruiser while he was playing Pokémon Go. The driver's response to police? "That's what I get for playing this dumb--- game."
