Mark Grace: Diamondbacks Broadcaster Aggravated DUI Charge

Mark Grace, a former first baseman for the Chicago Cubs and now successful broadcaster with the Arizona Diamondbacks was arrested in Scottsdale, Arizona for DUI on August 23, 2012. Now, police are requesting that prosecutors file an aggravated DUI charge instead. Mark Grace was initially pulled over on a routine traffic stop for having an expired license plate, although authorities suspected he might be drunk and issued a field sobriety test. Grace failed the test and officer’s found that he had a Blood Alcohol Content(BAC) level of .095%, which is slightly higher than the state’s legal limit of .08%.

Grace was also arrested for DUI on May 30, 2011, just 15 months before his August arrest. Apparently, Grace was driving with an expired license and without a mandatory interlock device, both of which were a result of his 2011 DUI. Mark Grace requested an indefinite leave from the Diamondbacks broadcasting booth to seek personal assistance and  the team has yet to issue a statement on the matter. Grace was in his ninth year as a broadcaster for the Diamondbacks before taking his leave of absense.
