To Protect & Catch Them All: LAPD Officers Played Pokémon Instead of Responding to Robbery Call

Two LAPD officers reportedly ignored a call to respond to a robbery at a local Macy’s to spend time hunting down a Pokémon in the popular mobile game Pokémon Go. Both men were fired from the police department, a decision upheld by an appeals court. According to transcripts from their police cruiser, the duo did capture the popular “Snorlax” character they were chasing at the time of the robbery call.
