North Carolina suspends P.J. Hairston indefinitely

Jamie Squire

After yet another run-in with the law, North Carolina has suspended junior guard P.J. Hairston indefinitely.

The University of North Carolina announced Sunday that men's basketball head coach Roy Williams has suspended junior guard P.J. Hairston indefinitely following a traffic citation for speeding and reckless driving.

Hairston was pulled over Sunday on Interstate 85 outside Webb, N.C. for doing 93 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone. The 20-year-old has a court date scheduled in Rowan County for Aug. 30.

Hairston's suspension is the culmination of a summer chock-full of legal problems. Hairston was arrested on June 5 and charged with possession of marijuana and driving without a license, although those charges were dismissed because he was cooperative with the courts.

There have also been some questions surrounding Hairston and several rented cars. The car that he was driving during his June arrest was rented under the name Haydn Thomas, a convicted felon. Hairston was also cited for speeding on May 13 while driving a car rented by Catinia Farrington, a woman who shares the same home address as Thomas.

Hairston averaged a team-high 14.6 points last season as a sophomore.
