TORONTO — A comedian who hopped on Toronto's subway tracks to make a "cautionary" video about Pokémon Go says he won't fight a charge against him, The Canadian Press reported.

Toronto Transit Commission spokesman Brad Ross said Mark Correia, 20, has been charged with unauthorized access on subway tracks, which carries a set fine of $425, according to the story.



The YouTube video, called "Pokémon Go Problems," shows Correia walking into various objects, falling over and walking on the subway tracks at Toronto's Union Station, all while looking at his cellphone and evidently playing the popular mobile game, according to The Canadian Press.
