Illustration for article titled Mark Grace Arrested For Looking Like A High School Teacher While Driving Drunk

Grace, the former Cub and Diamondback first baseman who now announces games for Arizona, was busted in Scottsdale during the wee hours of Memorial Day for weaving in his lane. The D-Backs had won that afternoon in Houston, their sixth in a row.


The Arizona Republic has more:

Grace, 46, was stopped by Scottsdale police at 64th Street and Cochise Road shortly after 1 a.m. May 30, after he made a wide right turn and police observed him weaving within his lane, according to the report.

Grace, who did not have his wallet or license with him at the time of the arrest, admitted to "having a few drinks," police said.

Grace was arrested on suspicion of driving with a blood-alcohol of more than the legal limit of 0.08 percent and being DUI-impaired to the slightest degree, according to police reports.


We're only inclined to wonder how and where Mark Grace was drinking for free—remember, no wallet—at midnight when he looked like that. Poor Scottsdale.
