70YO Man Arrested For Hunting Pokémon On The Street During Lockdown

A 70-year-old man was arrested in Spain because he played Pokémon Go on the street during a lockdown in the country. The incident went viral.

Many countries around the world are being hit badly by the ongoing pandemic. SARS-Cov-2 has spread to over 180 countries, infected more than 470,000 people and taken over 21,000 lives as of today.

Due to the severe situation, governments have put their country on full lockdowns like India, Italy, and Spain. The lockdown orders effectively require people to stay home if there’s nothing urgent or necessary for them to go out. However, there are some who still violate these orders and step out.

In a new case, a 77-year-old man in Madrid, Spain, was recently arrested by the police. The reason is that he was hunting Pokémon on the street with his phones. Police officers noticed him during the lockdown and arrested the old man.

After that, on March 23, the Madrid Police Department brought the incident to Twitter with a picture showing the official complaint registration of this particular arrest. The picture was captioned “hunting Pokémon, dinosaurs or any other creature is strictly prohibited during the lockdown.”

The tweet went viral quickly and got more than 900 likes in a short time. This is surely a funny story somehow, but clearly a strict reminder and a particular example for all of us who are required to stay inside.

Because of the sudden increase in the number of positive COVID-19 cases, Spain has been on full lockdown since March 14.

Meanwhile, in India, PM Modi has put the entire country on lockdown since March 24 and the India lockdown will last for 21 days. Before that, the Indian government placed a curfew and in several states, the police had to apply strict measures to punish those violating the order. They were seen beat, deflate tires of people who stepped out on the street despite the lockdown and they even made people do squat right on the street as a punishment too.
