Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer was arrested on charges of DUI and released from the Atlanta City Jail early Thursday morning. First reported by the 'Atlanta Journal-Constitution,' the Hawks issued a statement in relation to the incident. "Bud made us aware of the situation last night," general manager Danny Ferry said in a statement. "We are in the process of gathering more information and will have further comment at the appropriate time." According to an incident report obtained by the paper, Budenholzer was stopped because his car didn't have the tail lights on. The coach was given a field sobriety test then placed under arrest. The Hawks hired Budenholzer, 44, on May 28 to replace Larry Drew, who had served as the team's head coach for the previous three seasons. The job is Budenholzer's first as a head coach in the league after working for San Antonio since 1994 in various positions, lastly as associate coach to Greg Popovich. Budenholzer and Ferry have a long association, dating back to Ferry's days as a player with the Spurs and two stints in their front office before becoming Atlanta's general manager in June 2012. The 'Journal-Constitution' reported that Budenholzer also was charged with a tail light violation and released on 1,524 bond at 3:45 a.m.
