Maine Woman Accused Of Hitting Pokemon Go Player With Her Car
While, I truly understand her frustration...there's zero excuse for violence. According to WGME 13, 36 year old Jeannie Chapman hit a 37 year old man with her car after a brief verbal altercation. Chapman then fled the scene.
Witnesses state that the man was standing IN the crosswalk playing Pokemon Go with a group of friends. (By 'in' does that mean he was in the street? Was he just standing there blocking traffic?) Chapman and the game player exchanged words and then she struck him with her car.
If you're wondering what the heck is this crazy phenomenon called Pokemon Go, well, it's typically played on mobile phones, players use the device's GPS and camera to capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokémon, who appear on the screen as if they were in the same real-world location as the player.
The pedestrian was treated by a local ambulance crew and refused to be taken to the hospital.
