A Chicago man has now been charged with driving under the influence after crashing into an unmarked Chicago police car on the city's Northwest Side. Police say the officer's unmarked squad car was hit from behind by another vehicle Saturday night in the 3800 block of Lawrence Avenue in the Albany Park neighborhood.

The officer was injured, but treated and released.

Stefan Gherguta, 33, was charged with DUI after rear-ending the squad car.
