Man charged after shooting Pokemon Go video on TTC

How far would you go to catch 'em all in Toronto? Well, one man is heading straight to court. Yes, Mark Correia, the guy who was filmed playing Pokemon Go on the subway tracks is now facing a $425 fine and a charge under the TTC's bylaws. He's slated to appear in court on September 16.

Correia wasn't actually on the tracks chasing Pokemon. Instead, he was creating an online video, which aimed to poke fun at the great lengths players go to become Poke Masters.


The video by Correia and producer Jason D'Souza (together they're the Noodle Boys) has racked up more than 5.5 million views on Facebook since it first went up on July 19.
