Newly hired Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was arrested and charged with driving under the influence Wednesday night. The former longtime San Antonio Spurs assistant was named head coach of the Hawks in May.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
A trooper stopped Budenholzer about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday on 10th Street at Crescent Avenue in Midtown because the Audi A8 he was driving didn’t have the tail lights on, according to the State Patrol incident report obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
[...] After giving Budenholzer a field sobriety test, Nelms placed the coach under arrest. “I requested a breath test and Mr. Budenholzer refused the breath test by giving a verbal ‘No’,” Nelms said.
