Police were walking through the parking lot when they noticed the man driving erratic, they flashed their strobe light at him to get him to pull over.

After interrogating him, they discovered he had a couple beers and was frustrated at not catching a rare pokemon.

The driver told police that he became angry at “Pokemon Go” after a “Snorlax” escaped his pokeballs, according to a Rock Hill Police report.

The police gave him a breathalyzer test, but he didn’t drink enough to fail it.

He was then charged with reckless driving and “wanton disregard for the restaurant property,” according to the police report.

The Pokemon Go game was first launched about a month and half ago and has been spreading like wildfire all over the Charlotte region ever since.
