Life Doesn’t Get Much Worse Than Crashing Into a Cop Car While Playing Pokémon Go

Pokémon Go has suddenly made a lot of people do a lot of stupid stuff. In Baltimore, one man literally crashed into a parked police car while two cops were standing right next to it. Nice job, idiot. Even worse for this dude, the whole crash was captured by police body cameras.

In general, using your phone while driving is a pretty good way to kill yourself and others. Don’t look at your phone in any capacity while driving. It’s extremely dangerous! Pokémon Go can wait.

“That’s what I get for playing this dumb ass game,” the Pokémon Go addict told cops moments after crashing into their parked patrol car. According to ABC, the Baltimore Police didn’t say if this man was facing charges, or if he was seeking treatment for his Pokémon addiction. It doesn’t appear as if anyone was hurt.

This isn’t the first time there’s been an Pokémon Go related crash. Just last week, a man crashed his car into a tree while playing the game.
