Police: Man assaulted in argument over 'Pokemon Go'

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -

A 53-year-old Detroit-area man is in a hospital after an argument with a 33-year-old man who was playing "Pokemon Go."

The victim was bleeding from the back of his head on a sidewalk Wednesday night in Mount Clemens. Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham tells The Macomb Daily that the man acknowledged making disparaging remarks about the popular game.

The younger man was charged with aggravated assault, a misdemeanor.

Wickersham doesn't know what was said exactly, but he assumes it was "something about kids being robots" while they play in public.
