BERLIN (AP) -

An 18-year-old man wanted for evading a prison sentence was captured while playing Pokémon Go with friends.

Police in Germany said the group's odd behavior drew attention as they played the smart phone game Friday.

When officers checked his papers, the man gave a false identity. Police then discovered there was a warrant for his arrest.

He is now serving a 6 month sentence for an unspecified charge.
