Budenholzer was arrested Wednesday night after police pulled him over for a broken taillight. A field sobriety test put Budenholzer's BAC at 0.08, causing the charge of driving under the influence of alcohol. Officers also charged Budenholzer with being in possession of drugs and other substances, though the police report did not cite exactly which other drugs were found.
Budenholzer was taken into custody (hence the mugshot) before posting bond for $1,524 and being released.
"Bud made us aware of the situation last night," said Hawks GM Danny Ferry. "We are in the process of gathering more information and will have further comment at the appropriate time."
The Hawks hired Budenholzer from the Spurs, where he spent 16 years as an assistant coach and won four championships in San Antonio. He replaced Larry Drew, who left the Hawks after this past season's elimination in the first round of the NBA playoffs.
