UNC guard P.J. Hairston was reportedly arrested on drug charges on Wednesday night. ABC 11 in Raleigh/Durham first reported the news:

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

Hairston was also charged with driving without a license.

A UNC spokesman said the school's athletic department was aware of the situation and was still "gathering information."

According to additional details from an Associated Press report, the other two passengers with Hairston were Miykael Lael Israel Faulcon and Carlos Devone Sanford.

Hairston averaged 14.6 points in 23.6 minutes per game last season as a sophomore. He eventually became a starter in the team's four-guard lineup. Hairston considered going to the NBA but announced in April that he would be returning to UNC for his junior year, as his "way of supporting" his teammates and coach Roy Williams.
