Outrageous Pokémon Go Players Detained After Accidentally Crossing U.S. Border
Two Canadian teenagers were apprehended by U.S. border patrol agents Thursday after they accidentally crossed the border into Montana while playing the popular game.
Border Patrol Agent John South said the teens were engrossed with the augmented reality app and wandered into the U.S. near the town of Sweet Grass, Mont., which borders the town of Coutts in Canada's Alberta province, FoxNews.com reported.
South said border patrol agents briefly detained them while contacting their mother, who was nearby on the Canadian side. They were released to her custody.
Pokémon Go allows players go to various real-world locations and "catch" virtual characters that appear on their cell phones.
