Mike Budenholzer's DUI case has been a three-year saga but it came to an end on Monday when a jury returned a not guilty verdict. Budenholzer was found guilty of a tail light infraction but came away unscathed on the most serious charge.

Budenholzer's arrest came shortly before the start of the 2014 season which was his first in Atlanta. The process dragged out for nearly three years with the trial lasting four days. Former Hawks' President Danny Ferry was called to testify in the case.
