Default honda automatic grinding?

was rolling down a small hill @about 5-10mph, and i dropped it back in drive and it grinded pretty loud until it got into gear.

keep in mind this is a 2010 Honda civic AUTOMATIC. only Honda can make an automatic grind, but why did it do this?

rolling in neutral*

just because a car is automatic doesn't mean it cannot grind gears. you stated you're moving around 5-10 mph, well you will get a grinding if the torque converter is spinning at engine speed and the gearing for the transmission is spinning at a different speed when they meet. though not the same idea as flywheel and clutch configuration on a standard tranny, the inside of the automatic tranny still has gearing
