Police: Motorist Was Playing Pokémon Go On Eight Phones Simultaneously

When Sergeant Kyle Smith of the Washington State Patrol last night spotted a car on the shoulder of a road near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, he assumed the vehicle was somehow disabled.

But when Smith approached the auto, he discovered that the male driver had pulled over while playing Pokémon Go simultaneously on eight separate phones.

As seen in the above photo snapped by Smith, the driver had the phones secured inside a makeshift foam carrier rig.

The driver, cops say, agreed to put the phones in the car’s rear seat before resuming his commute. The motorist, who was not identified by police, was not cited for distracted driving or any vehicular violations.
