Yup. Someone playing Pokemon Go while driving ran into a Police car in Baltimore. Officer's body cameras caught the event.
A Pokemon Go enthusiast slammed into a Baltimore police car while playing the game on his phone early Monday morning, according to authorities.
In body-camera video released by the Baltimore Police Department, several officers are seen standing near a police car as a Toyota Rav 4 slams into the cruiser and continues driving.
In the video, an officer runs after the vehicle, which stops near the end of the block, and the driver gets out of his car.
The officer asks if everyone is OK, and the driver, whose face is blurred in the clip, shows the police officers his cellphone.
“That’s what I get for playing this dumb--- game,” the man says to the officers.

The “Beat the Boss” handsets (Amazon) are barely the size of lipstick or a stick of gum. They’re unlocked, dirt cheap, popular with kids, and easily concealed. They are marketed as being virtually […]

In recent years, natural language processing technology and language translation technology have advanced greatly. The trouble is, language translation software typically comes in the form of apps. And while your mileage may vary on their usefulness, they share one thing in common: a serious drain on the battery for your smartphone, the very thing you’ll […]
