On Wednesday night North Carolina junior guard P.J. Hairston was arrested on charges of possession of marijuana and driving without a license.

According to a report from WTVD in Durham, Durham Police found a gun outside of the rental car that Hairston was driving at the time of his being stopped at a license checkpoint.

There were two passengers in the car with Hairston, meaning that the firearm could have belonged to any of the three suspects.

Among the items found during the arrest were a Star 9mm handgun, a magazine with nine rounds of ammunition and 43 grams of marijuana. No charges have been filed in regards to the handgun, as the police are conducting forensics testing to determine possession.

Where this case ultimately ends up will more than likely depend on what police discover in regards to who the gun belongs to and whether or not the firearm is registered.

    Who rented the car for Hairston? I understand that the car had been rented for 3 weeks or so.
    I would think that the NCAA should investigate this for impermissible benefits.
