"When Sergeant Kyle Smith of the Washington State Patrol last night spotted a auto on the shoulder of a road near the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, he assumed the vehicle was somehow disabled", the publication says.
The driver of the vehicle, who was not identified, was playing the mobile game on eight different phones, according to Rick Johnson, the spokesman for the Washington State Patrol in King County, who tweeted about the incident.
Since the man wasn't spotted driving while playing the eight games, he couldn't be ticketed for that.
"It's unbelievable what people come up with to be distracted", Washington State Patrol Trooper Rick Johnson said.
What he found, instead, was the driver tending to eight smartphones running different games of Pokemon Go.
"The Sergeant did not observe him driving so just a warning not to pull to shoulder unless an emergency", Johnson tweeted. They were all neatly nestled in a foam casing, to ensure they were secure for optimal Pokemon hunting on the road.
Who plays Pokemon Go anymore? Players walk around their surroundings to catch Pokemon in real-time via augmented reality.
But distracted driving has caused accidents before.
Johnson said the driver agreed to put the phones in the back seat and continue his commute "with 8 less distractions".
Trooper Johnson notes that this is not the first incident with Pokemon Go on the road.
