NCAA: No More Charges For North Carolina Tar Heel P.J. Hairston

Jul 10 2013, 9:52pm CDT | by

A Durham police spokeswoman says no more additional charges will be slapped against North Carolina Tar Heel P.J. Hairston, who was arrested and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession.

No more additional charges will be slapped against North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston

Durham, N.C. police spokeswoman Kammie Michael confirmed this on Wednesday by saying her department "does not anticipate filing any additional charges in this case." No additional information was released, per the Associated Press

The 20-year-old Hairston was driving with Miykael Faulcon and Carlos Sanford on board a 2013 silver GMC Yukon rental car on June 5. They were consequently arrested at a Durham license checkpoint and charged with drug possession. Additionally, Hairston was charged with driving without a license. The three were eventually released on $1,000 unsecured bonds. 

Two daya after the arrest, a police report confirmed a 9-millimeter handgun and a magazine with nine rounds of ammunition were seized when Hairston and his companions were asked to pull over. These were all found outside of the vehicle, suggesting one of the three tried to get rid of them prior to the arrests

More than three weeks earlier, Hairston also got in trouble for speeding as he allegedly did 54 mph in a 45 mph zone while driving a Hertz rental car, a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro SS with Virgina license plates. He is due in court on August 2 for the speeding charge. 

North Carolina athletic director Bubba Cunningham issued a statement on Wednesday regarding the university's attempts to gather more information linking potential improper conduct by its men's basketball team

"We take these matters very seriously and are looking into these reports and the inferences they contain will all due diligence. It is my practice not to comment on the individuals involved or the details surrounding these reports until we have sufficient understanding of the facts involved. We are still gathering information, learning information from other sources, and we will not comment until we have a strong grasp of each individual situation."

Hairston averaged 14.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists as a sophomore last season.

Updated Long-Term Plan for the Charlotte Hornets

Aug 5 2014 5:21am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The future of the Charlotte Hornets has not gotten much attention because for the first time in quite a while, this franchise actually has good things to look forward to in the present day. That, and the fact that they have yet to play a game as the Hornets. The Hornets' outlook is a stark turnaround from just a few years ago when the team won seven games. Management has now landed two big names in free ag ...
