North Carolina’s P.J. Hairston has had quite the offseason. Last week, Hairston was happy that the charges against him were dropped from his June incident regarding possession of marijuana and driving without a license.
Despite getting a clean slate, it appears Hairston is in trouble with the law again. According to USA Today Sports, he was charged with reckless driving and speeding — he was allegedly going 93 mph in an area with a 65 mph speed limit.
This time around, Hairston’s actions have led to his suspension.
UNC cited Hairston’s Sunday traffic citation for reckless driving in announcing the indefinite suspension.
