These Two Canadians Set the Authorities Ablaze When They Crossed the Border Into the U.S. Playing Pokémon GO


Agents with the Border Patrol apprehended two Canadian teens that wandered themselves past the border into the U.S. while they were in the throes of a particularly engaging Pokémon GO session.

This is what the world needs now.”
