Mark Grace was suspended from his announcing duties by the Diamondbacks in late August due to his second DUI in 15 months. Earlier this month, a grand jury indicted him on four felony counts of aggravated driving while under the influence. Now, if convicted, he could do close to four years in prison.
The good news, if there is good news? Grace, who was absolutely adored by reporters during his playing days, could help himself a little and face less jail time if he pleads guilty to reduced charges, but he’s not eligible for probation because of a previous DUI.
Right here is where I’d love to tie in something about a slumpbuster, but this all far too depressing.
