Grace, who had bloodshot eyes, admitted to having "a few drinks," according to the police report. He didn't have his wallet or license on him.
Cops cuffed him after a field test and took him to a nearby command post for a blood sample and booking.
When asked by the arresting officer how he thought he did on his sobriety test, the report states that Grace replied, with the smell of alcohol on his breath, "Not well enough."
