Look, we were just fair, weren’t we? warning people last week to be more careful to play this game in these strange and uncertain times?
The BBC reports man in England –a nation that is currently locked up in an attempt to limit the spread of the infected infection resulting from a new, more contagious strain of Covid-19 – has violated the strict restrictions to play some Pokémon Go, and as a result was caught and fined by local police.
The fine of £ 200 ($ 270) is for “violating the requirement not to leave or be outside the place where they live, without reasonable justification” after he admitted to police that he had “taken from his home in Bedworth, to search for the characters in Kenilworth ”, a journey of about 25 minutes by car.
Police say people can only go out of their homes with a “reasonable excuse.” Searching for Pokémon is not a reasonable excuse.
