A Chicago man has been cited with driving under the influence after he allegedly sideswiped a Chicago police squad car early Sunday.

The two police officers in the squad car were taken to a nearby hospital, but they've since been treated and released.

The crash occurred in the 4900-block of North Pulaski around 1 a.m.

In addition to DUI, 31-year-old Joseph Mercado was also cited with two traffic related violations.
