Pokemon Go Players Getting Cited for Trespassing at Memorial Park in North Royalton

If you spot Pikachu in Memorial Park in North Royalton after hours, you'll have to wait until it reopens to go hunting or face a citation.

The North Royalton Police Department is citing Pokemon Go players for trespassing if they're caught playing the game when the park is closed. Last Saturday around 1 a.m., two people were cited for trespassing, according to WEWS. Yesterday, four more people were citing for trying to catch 'em all after hours. Of course, it's certainly not a rarity to be going where you're not supposed to be in pursuit of the game — two people in Toledo were cited for trespassing in the Toledo zoo after hours — but it's still discouraged.



Now, to their credit, finding hours for the park online wasn't the easiest (though we're guessing most kids probably won't be climbing the jungle gym at 1 a.m.), but it's probably best to hunt when the sun is actually out.
