Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was arrested and charged with DUI on Wednesday.

Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was arrested and charged with DUI on Wednesday. 

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a member of the Georgia State Patrol asked Budenholzer to pull over at around 10:30 p.m. because his car's tail lights were turned off. 

Trooper Jonathon Nelms recalls the incident in a police report which he produced. 

"As I spoke with him, I noticed that he had bloodshot and watery eyes and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath.

"I asked Mr.Budenholzer how much alcohol he had and he advised that he had one glass of wine to drink prior to driving. 

"I requested a breath test and Mr. Budenholzer refused the breath test by giving a verbal 'No.'"

However, the Hawks head coach agreed to a field sobriety test but was placed under arrest shortly after. 

Nelms added Budenholzer was "polite" although "his speech patterns were mumbled, slow and slurred," per ESPN. Budenholzer's lawyer, Michael Hawkins, said his client was released from jail on a $1,524 bond and entered an not guilty plea at Atlanta Municipal Court on Thursday. 

Budenholzer apologized for the incident. 

"I take my role as a leader very seriously and hold myself to a high standard. I apologize to the fans and to the Hawks organization for any negative attention this incident has brought upon myself and the organization while the legal process evolves and I contest these misdemeanor charges."

Him appealing the charges stems from his camp's claim that his blood alcohol level was below the legal limit of .08, per USA Today Sports. 

On the other hand, Hawks general manager Danny Ferry also clarified Budenholzer immediately informed him of what happened. 

"We take this matter seriously and have been in constant communication with Coach Budenholzer throughout this situation. We support him during this legal process and will let that take its course." 

Budenholzer was a San Antonio Spurs assistant coach for 17 years before he was elevated to the Hawks' head coaching position on May 29.
