The Pokemon Go craze is turning into a digital version of the Walking Dead. People are aimlessly wandering across the planet, unaware of their surroundings, collecting invisible stuffed animal creatures instead of delicious brains. In Toledo, Ohio last night, two Pokemon Zombies needed their Pokemon fix so bad they broke into the zoo.
Robin Bartholomy and Adrian Crawford were arrested at the Toledo Zoo at around 2:30 AM and charged with criminal trespassing, after hopping a fence into the zoo to play Pokemon. The cops arrested the couple outside of the Tiger exhibit after they were spotted by security cameras.
Bartholomy previously posted on Facebook that, “I am not above breaking and entering for a Pokemon.” Apparently, she was true to her word.
When reached for comment today, Bathlomy said, “It wasn’t the most responsible thing, but hey, you gotta catch them all.” Indeed. These Pokemon Go stories are starting to sound a lot like people on meth stories.
