SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - Pokemon Go players got a pleasant and unexpected surprise late Thursday night in downtown Shreveport, courtesy of at least one police officer with an appreciation for "catching them all" and a healthy sense of humor.
It was after midnight when a few members of the local band Escape 86 were unwinding after a rehearsal with some Pokemon hunting up and down Texas St. when guitarist M.C. says he captured the officer's playful Pokemon-themed gesture on video.
M.C. says he wanted to share the positive moment with more people than the few dozen that happened to be there.
"There were probably about 25-30 people around our area playing at the time and it really lit up the night for everyone out there and was really cool to see them not only be aware of the craze, but actively participate and try to make it more fun all around and definitely a safer experience for everyone down there."
