Police are warning Pokemon Go players to be vigilant after a crash related to the game was caught on Baltimore police officer’s body camera. It happened around in the pre-dawn hours of Monday, around 3:30 a.m. Some officers who had just finished a call for service were on the sidewalk in the 2900 block of Eastern Avenue when a Toyota RAV4 hit one of their patrol cars. “That’s what I get for playing this dumb a** game,” the driver can be heard telling the officer, who ran to the scene after witnessing the collision.
“It’s a game, but it’s not a game when you’re behind the wheel,” Baltimore Police spokesman T.J. Smith said at a news conference Tuesday. “This could have easily, easily been a tragedy.” Smith also warned people to be careful about letting the game make them a target for criminals, after game-related thefts in College Park and Baltimore County.
