LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) — IBF heavyweight title contender Tomaz Adamek has been charged with driving while intoxicated after police say he crashed his car into a parked vehicle in Lake Placid.

Village police tell the Adirondack Daily Enterprise (http://bit.ly/V5ERVT ) that the 36-year-old Jersey City, N.J., resident hit the unoccupied car while making a turn late Saturday night. Officials say Adamek was checked out at a local hospital but apparently didn't suffer any injuries.

Adamek was charged with DWI. He was arraigned in village court and released after posting $1,000 bail.

His lawyer, Brian Barrett, said the crash occurred at a "dangerous intersection" where other accidents have occurred, but he declined additional comment.

Adamek outpointed Steve Cunningham in a split decision in their IBF heavyweight title eliminator in Bethlehem, Pa., on Dec. 22. Adamek advanced to fight contender Kubrat Pulev, with the winner scheduled to take on IBF belt-holder Wladimir Klitschko.
