    Officials: Drunk Man Hits Police Cruiser
    Connecticut State Police

    A North Haven man was arrested after authorities say he struck a police cruiser while intoxicated and sent both drivers to the hospital.

    Joseph Mickolyzck, 33, was driving his Audi when he struck a state trooper's car at around 2:00 a.m on Saturday.

    The cruiser was parked in the shoulder on I-91 south of exit 9.

    Police said Mickolyzck was driving his 2006 Audi A4 northbound and was observed "utilizing multiple lanes" on the four lane highway. 

    Mickolyzck ended up veering into the left, rear side of the parked cruiser. 

    Both the driver and the officer sustained minor injuries and were sent to the hospital.

    Mickolyzck is accused of operating under the influence and failure to drive in the proper lane. 

    His bond was set at $500 and he is expected to appear in court on Apr. 7.
