Pokemon Go Traffic Stop - Gotta Catch 'Em All!

On August 13th, Washington State Patrol Trooper Sgt. Kyle Smith pulled over to help a person who he thought had a disabled vehicle. Instead, he found the driver was simultaneously playing the video game Pokemon Go on eight cell phones. Pictured above are the eight phones sitting in cutouts that had been made in a blue foam square.

Trooper Rick Johnson is a spokesman for the patrol and said Sgt. Kyle Smith did not issue a ticket because he did not observe the car moving while the driver was using the phones. But Smith asked the driver to put the phones in the back seat and move along, because stopping on the shoulder is for emergencies only.

At least the driver pulled over to try to 'Catch 'em all'. But me thinks, the driver has a bit of a Pokemon Go addiction. -via: Snopes
