Chicago Man Wearing Underwear Charged with DUI, Striking Squad Car

Arsenio Garcia, 24, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor DUI Saturday morning after allegedly striking a Chicago Police squad car. Police say Garcia was wearing only his underwear and socks when he was arrested.

Police were contacted by a concerned citizen around 11 a.m. when the vehicle in question was driving through an alley on the 2800 block of North Kostner Avenue on the city’s Northwest Side. The vehicle eventually drove the wrong way on a one-way street and collided with a squad car that was responding to the area.

Police officials say that after the crash, the man opened the door and fell out of the car wearing only his underwear and socks. He was transported to a hospital for minor scrapes. The Chicago officer driving the squad car was also taken to a local hospital for minor injuries.

Garcia was charged with misdemeanor DUI, driving the wrong way on a one-way street, using an alley as a through street, driving without a license, no insurance, failure to reduce speed, and damage to public property. His first court date is scheduled for March 6th at the Daley Center.
