North Carolina junior guard P.J. Hairston is in trouble with the law again after being charged with speeding and reckless driving on Sunday, according to Rachel Axon and Eric Prisbell of USA Today. Hairston was pulled over in a 2008 Acura TL on Interstate 85 outside Webb, N.C. for going 93 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone and has a court date set in Rowan County on Aug. 30.
It has been quite the eventful summer for Hairston, who was arrested on June 5 and charged for possessing marijuana and driving without a license after getting stopped at a license checkpoint. The 20-year-old had those charges dropped on July 19 because he completed a drug assessment and provided the court his current driver's license.
There was also some controversy surrounding the car that Hairston was driving at the time of that arrest. Hairston was driving a 2013 GMC Yukon that was rented under the name Haydn Thomas, a convicted felon and party promoter who has ties to several college athletes in the area.
Hairston was also cited for speeding on May 13 while driving a 2012 Camaro SS that was rented by Catinia Farrington, a woman who shares the same home address as Thomas.
Hairston has not yet faced any discipline from North Carolina for any of his transgressions, although head coach Roy Williams said on July 15 that the guard could face "serious consequences." Williams also called Hairston's issues "embarrassing."
