Grace was arrested Aug. 23 in Scottsdale. Police reports show his blood alcohol level at .095. That’s over the legal limit of .08.

This was Grace’s second DUI arrest in a little over a year. His license was suspended after the first arrest and he was required to use an interlock device in the vehicle.

Police say the former ballplayer was driving without a license and did not have the required device in his car when he was stopped the second time.

As a result he faces DUI charges and accusations of driving with a suspended license and without the interlock. He could face more than three years in prison if convicted.

The Diamondbacks dropped Grace from the broadcast team after his second arrest.
