Too close for comfort

Apparently an Iowa football player had something of a near-death experience as police approached him while he was distracted playing "Pokémon Go".   Apparently they thought he might be a man who had recently robbed a bank, and due to the headphones, the young man did not hear to comply with the police.

If any of the officers were wearing body cameras at the time--it's possible but not definite--it seems like a great chance to take a very good look at the footage and see what might be done to improve how the police apprehend criminals.  If I were the police chief, my request would be this:  "Ladies & Gentlemen, it looks like this young man dodged a bullet, and so did we.  Let's do what we can to make the next time less likely to be eventful." 

Glad you're OK, Faith, and have a great season, especially on November 12.  Make it your own personal "Weasel Stomping Day".
