NCAA: Roy Williams Says 'Serious Consequences' Await P.J. Hairston

Jul 15 2013, 6:33pm CDT | by

North Carolina Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams broke his silence on his beleaguered player, P.J. Hairston, saying there will be "serious consequences."

North Carolina Tar Heels head coach Roy Williams finally broke his silence on junior guard P.J. Hairston.

According to the Associated Press, Williams said Hairston will face "serious consequences" due to his drug charge stemming from a traffic stop arrest last month. Hairston was reprimanded by authorities twice while driving a rental vehicle which is tied up to a convicted felon. 

Williams said he and Hairston have had discussions regarding the matter with several options as consequence, including a possible suspension. 

"P.J. and I have had several discussions already and he knows he has made serious mistakes and there will be serious consequences as a result."

A separate ESPN blog confirms Williams' statement is from an email sent to UNC's media relations staff. 

The Tar Heels head coach also mentions Hairston is currently not enrolled in summer school and is not practicing with the team. Toward the end of his statement, Williams reiterated the values the school and the team place importance on and the severity of how Hairston's case will be handled. 

"We will care about each individual but there will be serious actions taken that will fix these issues. I take pride in our values and how we have conducted ourselves for a long time here at Carolina and this time will pass but it will be dealt with strongly."

Hairston was issued a ticket for speeding on May 13 while driving a rented 2012 Camaro SS. The drug charge came three weeks later on June 5, when Hairston was charged for possession of marijuana and driving without a license. The vehicle Hairston was driving was a rented GMC Yukon.  

In addition, a 9-millimeter handgun and a magazine with nine rounds of ammunition found outside the GMC Yukon were also seized by authorities. USA Today Sports confirms Hairston and his two companions, Miykael Faulcon and Carlos Sanford, were not issued charges for the firearm

Hairston, UNC's leading scorer last season, posted averages of 14.6 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game, per ESPN stats.
