Atlanta Hawks new coach arrested and charged with DUI

Usually it's the players that make these headlines, but not this time. The Atlanta Hawks new head coach Mike Budenholzer was arrested and charged with DUI Wednesday night. He was initially pulled over because the tail lights on his car were out, however when the officer questioned him he noticed signs of intoxication:
"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," Georgia state trooper Johnathon Nelms wrote in the report.
Budenholzer refused a breath test and took three of the four requested field sobriety tests. He admitted to having one glass of wine about 15 minutes before driving.  So, what does the Hawks organization have to say about this?
"Bud made us aware of the situation last night," Hawks president of basketball operations Danny Ferry said in a statement. "We are in the process of gathering more information and will have further comment at the appropriate time."
Well, I have a comment. I think Budenholzer may need to get a driver and extend his time from when he drinks to when he gets on the road. I'm sure this will roll over (pun intended), but he may need to curtail his adult beverages for a while. What do you think? Your Jersey Girlfriend, ~Angela Davis
