Police heard squealing tires in the parking lot of the Pump House restaurant before a man driving a Toyota Camry sped through while playing “Pokemon Go.”
Officers were patrolling on foot near the riverside restaurant Saturday when they spotted the man. Police used a strobe flashlight to get him to stop.
The driver said he got angry while playing the “Pokemon Go” game on his cell phone, according to a Rock Hill Police report. The game uses GPS technology and lets players find and “capture” Pokemon characters roaming around real-life areas.
He admitted to drinking two beers at the restaurant an hour prior to the stop but it was not enough to fail a sobriety test.
