Not using your phone while driving is common sense, so it really shouldn't need to be said that playing Pokémon Go while you're behind the wheel is a definite no go.

Baltimore Police Department have released this footage from one of their cop's body camera's that caught the moment a driver crashed into a parked police car because he was playing the game that has taken the world by storm.

When the cops caught up to the driver, he immediately explained what happened, saying "That’s what I get for playing this dumb ass game."

Thankfully no one was in the car at the time and no one was hurt but if ever there was a lesson in putting down your phone, this is it.
