Sex-Offender Arrested For Playing Pokemon GO With Teen Boy Outside Courthouse

A registered sex offender has been arrested after being spotted playing Pokemon Go with a teenage boy outside an Indiana courthouse.

Randy Zuick, 42, of Greenfield, was taken into custody after two probation officers spotted him playing the game with the 16-year-old boy on the lawn of the county courthouse, according to Greenfield Daily Reporter.

The Hancock County Circuit Court is one of the numerous local sites highlighted in the popular game and has been attracting players since the app’s release in the United States last week, according to the newspaper.

But it also houses the probation department and county probation officer Nick Layman spotted Zuick playing the game with the child – a violation of the plea agreement he took three months ago in a child molestation case.

Mary Kay Dobbs, another officer who was with Layman at the time, ran into the courthouse to alert Gary Harris, a court security officer.

Harris took Zuick into custody, according to the Daily Reporter.

He was booked into the Hancock County Jail on Wednesday afternoon.

Zuick remains in custody until he faces a judge, who will decide whether his probation should be revoked.

He pleaded guilty to a felony charge of child molestation in April after being accused of fondling a child under 14 that his girlfriend was babysitting.
