Man Fined $270 For Violating Lockdown – To Play ‘Pokemon Go’

A UK man has been fined $270 for violating lockdown rules – by leaving the house to play Pokemon Go.

Police say the man traveled from Bedworth to Kenilworth to try and capture some digital critters – breaking rules that only permit people to leave their homes with “a reasonable excuse.”

A police spokeswoman reminded locals that “Everyone has a part to play in ensuring they slow the spread of the virus”.

How often do you leave the house in a week? Did you know people were still playing Pokemon Go?
