A man wearing a t-shirt reading "I'm A Drunk" crashed into a police car early Thursday on Long Island and is being charged with driving while intoxicated, police said.

Kevin Daly, of Coram, N.Y., was driving a 2000 Saturn on County Road 83 at about 1:45 a.m. when he hit the patrol car.

The entire message on his t-shirt reads "I'm Not An Alcoholic, I'm A Drunk. Alcoholics Go to Meetings."

The officer, who is assigned to the Suffolk County Police Department's alcohol fatality enforcement team, was treated for minor injuries.

Coram, 22, was not hurt.

He was ordered held on $10,000 bail at his arraignment and was issued several traffic summonses. He was represented by an attorney from Legal Aid, which has a policy of not commenting on pending cases.

Daly is due back in court Wednesday.
