Former Cub Mark Grace could face an aggravated DUI charge stemming from his drunken driving arrest last month in Scottsdale, Ariz., police said Tuesday.
Officer David Pubins said a submittal for an upgraded charge for the DUI arrest—Grace’s second in Scottsdale in less than 15 months—was filed to the county attorney’s office.
Grace, who is an Arizona Diamondbacks TV analyst, was driving on a suspended license from the previous DUI and without a required interlock ignition device, both cause for upgraded charges.
The Maricopa County Attorney’s office will make the decision on the submittal of the upgraded charge. An aggravated DUI conviction in Arizona is a felony punishable by mandatory prison time.
Grace has been on an indefinite leave of absence from the broadcast booth since the arrest in August.
