Hawks' coach Budenholzer arrested for DUI

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was arrested Wednesday night on a drunk driving charge.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a Georgia State Patrol trooper stopped Budenholzer's vehicle at about 10:30 p.m. ET because its tail lights were not operating.

The paper said Budenholzer was booked into the Atlanta City Jail and was released at 3:45 a.m. Thursday morning on $1,524 bond.

Budenholzer was named the new Hawks coach in May after spending the past 19 seasons in San Antonio, the last 17 as an assistant coach.
