A bus driver for touring company Ringelbert Tours in Ridderkerk may be summarily dismissed after he was caught playing Pokemon Go behind the wheel, Laurens Boom, director of the touring company, said to Omroep West.

The bus driver was caught catching Pokemon behind the wheel on video footage that surfaced on Dumpert. According to Boom, he's been working fro the company for years and never had a complaint against him. "But we are professional drivers. This is unacceptable."

The footage also provoked angry reactions on social media, according to the Telegraaf. "Irresponsible behavior" one reaction reads, calling for dismissal and a fine.
