CHICAGO (CBS) — Imagine heading to your car in the morning, only to find it smashed.

Some residents of Rogers Park likely had that experience Monday morning, after a drunken driver slammed into three parked cars.

Police said Joel Contreras, 45, was driving drunk along the 1800 block of West Greenleaf Avenue, and slammed into three parked cars just before midnight Sunday night.

Contreras is charged with DUI, failure to report and accident, and fleeing the scene of an accident.

No one was injured in the incident.
