Report: Gun found after UNC's Hairston arrested

Raleigh, NC (Sports Network) - P.J. Hairston, the leading scorer for the North Carolina men's basketball team last season, was arrested Wednesday by Durham police during a traffic stop in which a handgun and more than 1 1/2 ounces of marijuana were seized.

According to the Raleigh News & Observer, police confiscated 43.2 grams of marijuana in addition to the weapon when Hairston, along with two passengers, was pulled over in a rented GMC Yukon Wednesday night in Durham. Nine rounds of ammunition were also reportedly found.

Hairston, a 6-foot-6 guard who averaged 14.6 points per game and made 89 three-pointers as a sophomore for the Tar Heels this past season, was charged with misdemeanor drug possession and driving without a license. Police are still investigating who the gun belongs to.

The North Carolina athletic department has yet to comment on Hairston's arrest and is gathering further information regarding the incident.
