Man Driving In Underwear Gets DUI

CHICAGO, Jan. 16 (UPI) — A man clad only in underwear and socks was charged with drunken driving after his vehicle hit a police car during the weekend in Chicago, police said.

Police were notified about a man possibly driving drunk in an alley on the city’s Northwest Side, the Chicago Tribune reported Sunday. Apparently the man thought the alley was a through street, police said.

The man, identified as 24-year-old Arsenio Garcia of Chicago, eventually drove the wrong way down a one-way street and crashed into a police vehicle that was answering the call, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli said.

After the crash Saturday, Garcia opened the door and fell out of the car, wearing only skivvies and socks, Mirabelli said. He was taken to a hospital, where he was treated for minor scrapes to his face.

Police said Garcia was charged with several infractions, including misdemeanor DUI, using an alley as a through street, driving the wrong way on a one-way street, no license, no insurance, failure to reduce speed and damage to public property.

The officer in the squad car suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from a hospital.
