It was reported that 2 men have been arrested in relation to the game, Pokémon Go. Two men, aged 28 and 33 were arrested at Plaza Singapura after getting into a brawl at the carpark entrance.
It is likely that the dispute occurred after a car driver had honked at a pedestrian. The pedestrian was playing Pokémon Go on his mobile phone while crossing the road.
