The Grayslake police chief was charged with DUI after he and his wife were involved in a crash while returning from a restaurant just over the state line in Wisconsin, authorities say.
Matt McCutcheon was turning onto Route 45 in Silver Lake when he struck a car on the highway around 10 p.m. Friday, according to the police report. No one was injured in either car.
Responding officers said they found McCutcheon, 46, standing outside his black Honda when they arrived. He was swaying and almost lost his balance as he pulled out his wallet and showed his police badge, according to the police report.

Battling a drunk-driving arrest, ex-Chicago Blackhawks star Chris Chelios won a key legal victory Wednesday that likely means the DUI charge against him will be dismissed.
Westmont police lacked probable cause to arrest Chelios following a Dec. 28 traffic stop, DuPage County Judge Cary Pierce ruled after viewing a 15-minute police videotape showing the Dec. 28 traffic stop and sobriety tests that led to the DUI charge.
The ruling clears the way for Chelios to formally ask that the DUI charge be tossed out — a request his attorney expects will be granted.
“The case is over,” said defense attorney Terry Ekl. “This video is as clear cut as possible that he was not impaired by alcohol.”
