    Grayslake's police chief was arrested last week following a crash in Wisconsin for driving under the influence, according to reports.

    Matt McCutcheon, 46, was driving with his wife just before 10 p.m. last Friday in Kenosha County when he collided with another car head-on, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    There were no injuries, but McCutcheon was arrested for DUI and being armed while intoxicated. McCutcheon was named Grayslake chief in February after two decades with the department.

    Officers said they observed the chief swaying back and forth, according to the Sun-Times. They said McCutcheon had alcohol on his breath and his eyes were red.

    According to a police report, the chief told officers when asked that he'd had a few beers with dinner. He refused precautionary medical treatment and a field sobriety test, according to the report.

    He later said he'd had three vodka martinis at a restaurant in Wilmot, Wis.

    The Sun-Times reports that Grayslake Village Board since called an executive session meeting. It starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
