Durham Police Arrest PJ Hairston...

This just adds to the rivalry. Duke cops arresting UNC player stud PJ Hairston for the herb.

DURHAM (WTVD) -- Durham Police confirm to ABC11 that UNC basketball player PJ Hairston, and two other men, were charged with possession of marijuana Wednesday.

Police say the sophomore guard was stopped at a license check at 10:20 p.m. at the intersection of Holloway and Guthrie streets near downtown Durham.

Hairston was also charged with driving without a license.

A spokesman for UNC Athletics tells ABC11 that they are aware of the situation.

"We are aware of the situation involving one of our athletes," UNC Senior Associate Athletic Director for Communications Steve Kirschner said. "We are still gathering information and may comment further later."
In April, Hairston confirmed he would be returning to UNC next season after considering going to the NBA.

It is unclear on how Wednesday's arrest will impact Hairston's standing at the university.

Ok Chapel Hill police department, you're up. Time to start hassling the Dukies!

I hear you

I live in va but am a Carolina fan, so I feel your pain... Can't help it if your dad raises you to be a heel in cavalier country.

Yeah let someone else drive and hold the bag. You're better than that PJ.

"According to sources close to the situation, Hairston will be disciplined internally and is not expected to be suspended for any practices or games next season."

Really?

What does a stoner look like? Does smoking weed occassionally make you a stoner? And why is it, that people who smoke weed are viewed badly or negatively? Or is it just not acceptable in the presence of athletes? News flash, most NBA players smoke weed, ya even Lebron. I heard he rolls horrible spliffs tho.

This really isn't an issue

This really isn't an issue except for the fact that he made a dumb choice in choosing to drive without a license. The NBA hasn't trusted for bud or what I like to call my own lil version of pop eyes spinach Hahaha but yea they haven't tested for it in years. Plus soon it will be legal I forgot what position he held but a former top Microsoft exec isststarting a $100mil bud company in Washington. &$#%#&@! woody Paige even once said if the NBA tested for weed there wouldn't be an NBA lol. The real issue is the stupid choice in knowing u don't have a license and choosing to drive none the less while blazing cause that reflects more on character and decision making.

The weed is not that big of deal but driving without a license is just stupid.

And his first mistake was going to Durham in the first place...

pretty interesting video i saw the other day on the news. rates of marijuana possession charges of white people vs black people. also shows usage rates, quite evident that racial discrimination is still very real.

Misdemeanor marijuana possession

Misdemeanor marijuana possession is the charge. Hopefully he learns to be more discreet but not really a big deal. News Flash: Basketball players smoke weed? No sh!t! If he ever needs someone to hold his stash for him I am willing to help out PJ , I am just down the road.

Oh and btw I doubt you'll

Oh and btw I doubt you'll find one Duke fan in the Durham PD.

And going off of past UNC history, I doubt that any really damaging punishment will happen to PJ. It would've been different if it was Desmond Hubert.

my guess

Probably won't need to plant it. If you randomly check college kids cars there is a 50% chance you will find weed.

Do Mormons blaze?

Or is that against their religion?
