Former Chicago Cubs first baseman Mark Grace was arrested on Memorial Day in Scottsdale, AZ on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. He was taken to the local county jail, and by the looks of his mug shot, he was not too torn up about it.
According to the reports, Grace was pulled over by Scottsdale police around 1 a.m. after he made a wide right turn and was failing to stay in his lane. After the officer approached the car, Grace, who did not have his wallet or license with him at the time of the arrest, admitted to “having a few drinks.”
Although it is not yet known what his blood-alcohol level was at the time, he was taken to a command post to have his blood drawn and results were pending.
Grace is currently the color analyst for the Arizona Diamondbacks, and after hearing about his arrest, the team spokesman simply said:
“It’s a pending legal matter, and we have no comment at this time.”
Given Mark Grace’s pretty boy image and his contributions to the Diamondbacks, we assume this arrest will merely serve as a slap on the wrist for this former slugger. And as of yesterday, he was still traveling with the team.
