A Chicago man faces a felony charge after he allegedly damaged a marked Chicago Police Department squad car during Sunday's gay pride parade.

Dionte D. Rice, 19, was charged with one felony count of criminal damage to property.

He was scheduled to appear in court on Monday.

Police said Rice, of the 11600 block of South Church Street, in the Morgan Park neighborhood, is the only felony arrest resulting from the annual celebration.

The squad car was parked near the intersection of North Halsted Street and West Aldine Avenue. A photo posted to Twitter showed revelers standing atop the vehicle, which had a smashed windshield.

Police put the crowd estimate for Sunday's festivities in the Boystown neighborhood at more than one million people.
