PHOENIX — Scottsdale police say Arizona Diamondbacks television announcer Mark Grace was arrested on Memorial Day on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.
A police report says the 46-year-old former major leaguer was stopped by Scottsdale police shortly after 1 a.m. on May 30 after he made a wide right turn and was weaving within his lane.
Police say Grace didn’t have his wallet or license with him at the time. They say Grace was arrested on suspicion of driving with a blood-alcohol of more than the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
The Arizona Republic says Grace was taken to a command post to have his blood drawn and results are pending.
A Diamondbacks spokesman says the team had no comment on Grace’s arrest, calling it a “pending legal matter.”
Grace, a fan favorite when he anchored first base for the Cubs from 1988-2000, was a three-time All-Star during his playing career.
