[MUSIC] One man, Boon Sheridan, lives in an old church in Massachusetts which to his surprise was turned into a Pokemon gym. Players had been spending the weekend part outside his place, even blocking his driveway. Must have been a pretty intense experience for someone who didn't know what Pokemon Go was. Boon seemed to be taking it with a sense of humor though, even getting a picture with the guy who owned his gym. [MUSIC] Pokemon Go brings people to all sorts of places and Some are mor appropriate than others. The Holocaust Museum along with many other landmarks is a Poke Stop. That means a bunch of people were walking into the museum to get Pokemon. A player even encountered an unsettling Pokemon, Coffing, in the Museum Helena Rubenstein Auditorium. The image is now deleted. So there's no telling if the Pokemon really was there. But there's no denying people were throwing down lures and watching people flock in to capitalized on the Pokemon. The museum communication director is currently looking into how to get the museum excluded from the game. But as of now, it's still available the app. [MUSIC] Searching for Pokemon can actually put you in danger if you're not paying attention, like putting yourself in the middle of the busy street. But a guy found more than he bargains for, when he found himself in a situation where he looked like he was in a drug deal. The 40 year old Reddit user slothofdoom found himself at a park at 3 AM as you do. When he was approached by two as he states, sketchy guys. Turns out they were playing too and had a good chat about the game. But then a cop pulled up thinking there was something illegal going on. After explaining the situation, everything calmed down. The cop even joined in on the fun. Downloading the app himself. It's a good ending to an all too troubling tale, where people are presumed to be getting into no good. [MUSIC] Pokemon Go is perfect for people just waiting around. You could probably grab a few if you're patient enough. But this father to be found his wife going into his labor was the perfect opportunity to catch a Pingee. The Imgur caption states, When your wife is about to have a baby and a Pokemon shows up and you have to low-key catch it. That kid wasn't even in the world yet, but he already had father of the year. [MUSIC] Pokemon Go tells you to be aware of your surroundings when playing but people still find themselves falling on the sidewalks and getting into danger. In O'Fallon, Missouri four teens were caught taken out spot known to be popular for the game and then robbing the players. Police said the suspects they have in custody may have been involved in nearly a dozen robberies The police got suspicious with the large amount of people near a gas station, it just wasn't normal. Before robbers used their knowledge of the game to ambush victims at spots they knew would draw players and picked relatively secluded spots for the crimes. A reminder to everyone, to look around and know where you are at All times. [UNKNOWN] and [UNKNOWN] Taylor were downtown Fullerton hunting Pokemon. [UNKNOWN] game froze, as they do, and they had to hang out for a bit, and then they saw a man who appeared to be Scaring woman and her three sons.

That guy is now locked up and so should Still playing Pokemon Go, walking around and waiting for the next chance to be a hero. [MUSIC] A Wyoming teen decided to visit the river in search of Pokemon.

She said the body was floating about three feet from the shore and it looked like an average sized male body. Police came shortly after and confirmed it was in fact a dead body. Detectives say the body had been there for less Been 24 hours. The team was shaken but says she's okay now. We actually don't know that she ever caught that Pokemon.
