Budenholzer Pleads Not Guilty

Recently, Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer has pleaded not guilty from an August 2013 DUI arrest. This may not seem like much to Hawks fans, but there are some serious consequences at stake. These consequences include a jail sentence of up to a year, a $1,000 fine, a suspension of his driver’s license, or community service. Additionally, he could face discipline from the NBA. In 2013, Budenholzer was pulled over by a Georgia State Patrol officer, who stated that Budenholzer had “bloodshot and watery eyes, and a strong odor of alcoholic beverage coming from his breath.” Budenholzer has apologized for any negativity that could affect the Hawks organization and the fanbase. A hearing for this case has been scheduled for Wednesday, so we will have to wait to see what unfolds.
