Watch a man crash into a parked police car while playing Pokemon Go

Pokemon stop. This astonishing piece of footage is exactly what happens when someone playing Pokemon Go doesn't pay attention to the road and crashes into a cop car in Baltimore. Everyone is ridiculously understanding about the situation and the guy doesn't even try to hide it - look at him get out of the car with the game still running - but please don't Pokemon and drive. When it comes to playing at 30mph it is, as the man says, 'A dumb ass game."

This is only some of the crazy Pokemon Go-ings on since the global release of the game over a week ago - shootings and crime solving anyone? Don't expect the absurd train to stop any time soon. The game is being released in Japan today.
