BALTIMORE – A man playing Pokemon Go while driving ended up colliding with a Baltimore police officer’s parked patrol car early Saturday morning.

The officers had just responded to a 911 call and were standing on the sidewalk around 3:30 a.m. when one officer’s body camera recorded the accident.

They were standing steps from the vehicle when, suddenly, a tan-colored Toyota RAV4 slammed into the patrol car at high speed.

No one was seriously injured, and when officers caught up to the driver he seemed more embarrassed than anything.

The driver got out of the car holding his phone so police could see the game, and said, “That’s what I get for playing this dumb a** game.”
