Pokémon GO dispute leads to father and adult son beating up another player

Pokemon GO is taken seriously by a lot of people, but perhaps some take it a bit too seriously. A 71-year-old man and his adult son beat up a Pokémon GO player after that player accused the pair of cheating. The victim threw a plastic bottle in the car of the father/son pair, which lead to the father throwing a bottle back. Things escalated from here, with the father holding down the victim down while his son punched him in the face repeatedly. The pair were taken into custody for the beating and were held on $15,000 bail.
