How Pokémon Go took two policemen out of work – CD-Action

On Friday, documents appeared on the web in a 2017 case concerning multiple misconduct in the work of two police officers from Los Angeles. The officers appealed against the court’s verdict, but it remained legally binding – they will not be reinstated. Probably it would not be the news that we would like to write about on the website of the website dedicated to video games, if not for the fact that … the reason for the dismissal was Pokémon Go.

It started when there was a break-in into the Macy’s chain store in the area where the police car of policemen Louis Lozano and Eric Mitchell was located. However, instead of going to the scene of the robbery and chasing the thieves, the officers’ car moved away in the opposite direction. As it turned out, shortly after the summon appeared, a rare Snorlax appeared in the area …

Officers did not admit playing while on duty, but everything was recorded in DICVS, the car’s digital video system. You can clearly hear that Lozano and Mitchell have received a call for intervention, but they did not move – but their enthusiasm was aroused by the information that a rare Pokémon appeared in the area.

So, instead of chasing thieves, the policemen made a round in the area looking for digital pets – let alone the fact that you cannot play Pokémon Go while driving.

It is not known what the fate of the robbers was. However, we know that two policemen managed to catch Snorlax and Togetic. So much good!
