"I take my role as a leader very seriously and hold myself to a high standard. I apologize to the fans and to the Hawks organization for any negative attention this incident has brought upon my family and the organization while the legal process evolves and I contest these misdemeanor charges," said Coach Budenholzer."
Here is a statement from the Hawks that was issued earlier this morning:
"Bud made us aware of the situation last night. We are in the process of gathering more information and will have further comment at the appropriate time."
It is certainly a touchy situation as details continue to emerge. Per the AJC's report, Coach Budenholzer entered a plea of Not Guilty this morning. If found guilty then he would likely face some sort of suspension from the NBA.
Budenholzer's attorney, Bud went to hospital right after getting out jail for blood test: less than .01, well below the legal limit of .08.— Zach Klein (@ZachKleinWSB) August 29, 2013
