Former Chicago Cub Mark Grace May Face Felony DUI Charges

According to police, Mark Grace, former Cubs first baseman, could face felony aggravated DUI charges after he was arrested last month in Scottsdale, Arizona. A request for an upgraded charge was filed to the Maricopa County Attorney’s office after Grace picked up his second DUI arrest in less than 15 months.

Grace is working as an Arizona Diamondbacks TV analyst; he has been on an indefinite leave of absence since the August 23rd arrest. Grace was allegedly stopped for having an expired license plate and arrested after failing a field sobriety test. He was allegedly driving on a suspended license which resulted from his earlier DUI arrest. It was required that Grace drive only with an interlock ignition device. Both his suspended license and the failure to use the device are basis to upgrade the DUI charge. A police spokesman claimed that blood tests showed Grace had a BAC of .095, above the .08 legal limit.

I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
