Ex-Diamondbacks announcer is indicted in DUI case

Associated Press  |  Last updated October 25, 2012
Former Arizona Diamondbacks first baseman and television analyst Mark Grace has been indicted in a DUI case and could face nearly four years in prison if he's convicted, authorities said Thursday. The Maricopa County Attorney's Office said a grand jury indicted Grace on Oct. 3 on four felony counts of aggravated driving or actual physical control while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or drugs. Authorities said Grace faces between one and 3.75 years in prison on each count, but the sentences would likely be imposed concurrently if he's convicted because they relate to one incident. Grace, 48, could face less time if he pleads guilty to reduced charges, according to authorities who said he's not probation eligible because it was his second DUI charge in a 15-month span. A call to Grace's attorney, Larry Kazan, for comment wasn't immediately returned Thursday afternoon. Grace was arrested Aug. 23 by Scottsdale police who said his blood-alcohol level was .095 percent, above the state's legal limit of .08. Police said Grace also was allegedly driving on a suspended license and didn't have the required interlock device installed in his vehicle stemming from a May 2011 DUI charge. Grace took a leave of absence after his second arrest and the Diamondbacks recently replaced him in the broadcast booth after nine seasons. He played 16 years in the majors with the Chicago Cubs and Diamondbacks and was a member of Arizona's 2001 World Series championship team.
