ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has apologized for his arrest on a driving under the influence 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."
According to the report, Budenholzer refused a breath test but agreed to a field sobriety test. He told Nelms he had one glass of wine.
Hawks general manager Danny Ferry says in a statement that he is aware of the arrest and is gathering more information.
In a statement through his attorney, Budenholzer apologized to fans and the team. He's out on bond.
