A Man Is In Court For Playing Pokemon Go In Church

Russia does not appreciate Pokemon Go...at least not at church. Russian blogger Ruslan Sokolovsky was arrested last year for playing the mobile game in a church built on the supposed spot where the family of the last Russian tsar, Nicholas II, was killed.

Now, the 22-year-old is finally seeing his day in court on charges of "inciting religious hatred." If convicted, he faces up to seven-and-a-half years in prison if convicted. 

ONE MORE THING! "Inciting religious hatred" was the same charge that sent two women from the band Pussy Riot to prison for two years back in 2012.
