Man Fined $270 For Violating Lockdown - To Play 'Pokemon Go'

A UK man has been fined $270 for violating lockdown rules - by leaving the house to playPokemon Go.

Police say the man traveled from Bedworth to Kenilworth to try and capture some digital critters - breaking rules that only permit people to leave their homes with "a reasonable excuse".

A police spokeswoman reminded locals that "Everyone has a part to play in ensuring they slow the spread of the virus".

How often do you leave the house in a week? Did you know people were still playingPokemon Go?
