From Aug 30, Philly.com wire reports:
Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer apologized yesterday for his arrest on a driving under the influence of alcohol charge.
According to a report from the Georgia State Patrol, Budenholzer was pulled over at 10:30 p.m. Wednesday in Atlanta for not having working taillights. Trooper J. Nelms said Budenholzer had bloodshot and watery eyes "and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath."
Budenholzer refused a breath test but agreed to a field-sobriety test, according to the report. He told Nelms that he had only one glass of wine and that he finished the glass about 15 minutes before being pulled over. Nelms said in the report that Budenholzer was "polite" and that his speech patterns were mumbled, slow and slurred.
