Mark Grace, Ex-Chicago Cub, Gets Prosecuted for 4 DUI Counts

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, former Chicago Cubs and Arizona Diamondbacks player Mark Grace has been indicted for a DUI charge that occurred on August 23. If found guilty, he could face up to four years in prison. On October 3, a grand jury indicted Grace with “four felony counts of aggravated driving or actual physical control while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs.”

Legal authorities stated that each of Grace’s felony accounts carry severe punishments, including one to 4 years of imprisonment. However, they claimed that the punishments “would likely be imposed concurrently if he’s convicted because they relate to one incident.” Grace’s attorneys stated that he could reduce his jail time if he chooses to plead guilty. He does not qualify for probation because it is the second DUI charge he received within a 15-month time period.

On August 23, Grace was arrested by police officials for having a blood-alcohol level of .095%, which is above the legal limit of .08%. Furthermore, he was driving on a suspended driver’s license and did not have the mandatory interlock device that was supposed to be installed in his vehicle from a DUI he received in May 2011. Grace took a voluntary leave of absence after his second arrest, but the Diamondbacks recently placed him back in the broadcast booth after nine seasons.
