Ex-Spurs coach Mike Budenholzer arrested on DUI charges

Budenholzer stopped by Georgia State Patrol in Atlanta


SAN ANTONIO – Former San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Mike Budenholzer was arrested late Wednesday night on DUI charges in Atlanta, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on its website.

The report said that a Georgia State Patrol stopped Budenholzer, who is now head coach of the Atlanta Hawks, for not having his tail lights on.

The trooper who stopped Budenholzer noticed the coach "had bloodshot and watery eyes and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from his breath," the report stated.

After Budenholzer refused a breath test, he was charged with DUI and a tail light violation, the report stated. He was released on bond at 3:45 a.m., the report stated.

Budenholzer was with the Spurs for 19 seasons before he was hired by the Hawks in May.
