Need another reason not to pursue the hunt for Pikachu while behind the wheel? The Baltimore Police Department is here to help you.

The department released a video on Tuesday of a driver ramming into a parked police cruiser while playing Pokemon GO.

“#PokemonGO is not all fun and games,” the department noted in a tweet of the clip. “Here is a video of a distracted driver who struck one of our cars. #PlaySafe.”

According to the video’s date stamp, the incident occurred on Monday.

“That’s what I get for playing this stupid game,” the unidentified man says in the video.

The collision is just the latest documented report of the highly popular game leading to misfortune. As reported last week, a driver in Auburn, New York, wrecked his car while playing Pokemon GO.

Meanwhile, another car was struck on the campus of Texas A&M after its driver illegally parked the vehicle to play the game.

Also last week, two men in Encinitas, California, had to be rescued after falling from a cliff while on the hunt for Pokemon characters.

Watch the video … and take its message to heart.
