UNC AD responds to controversy surrounding P.J. Hairston
CHAPEL HILL — The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Director of Athletics responded to recent controversy surrounded UNC basketball star P.J. Hairston, according to WTVD.
The comments come more than a month after Hairston was arrested during a stop at a license check in Durham.
On June 5, the 20-year-old sophomore guard was charged with driving without a license. He, along with Mykael Faulcon and Carlos Sanford, were also charged with possession of marijuana.
Authorities also said a 9mm handgun was found on the ground outside the SUV Hairston was driving during the stop. Forensic testing is currently being done on the weapon, according to police.
The man who rented the SUV told WTVD in an interview last week that he has no ties to the UNC basketball program, sports agents, or Hairston.
