PJ Hairston Arrested

The 'facts' of this are still confusing and evolving, so who knows where it'll end up, but at this point I just don't see anything that gets him dismissed from the team or disciplined by the NCAA...

 

- Borrowed a car from a friend, who was given the car by another friend.  Not an agent, booster or anyone affiliated with the university.

 

- Charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana and DWOL.

 

- Open carry of a firearm in NC is legal.  That being said, I'm not sure how the previously mentioned charges aggravate that, if at all.  If anyone has a link to the statutes stating those specifics, I'd love to read them.

 

Barring more to it than that, I just don't see much coming of it, to be honest...  Granted, it's not the brightest thing he could do, and it doesn't look good for the program or the university, but I just don't see the reprimandable violations currently present...  And of course, if more comes out, it's all subject to change...

This is not true, the car was given to PJ by Thomas. "P.J. Hairston, was cited for speeding May 13 while driving a Hertz rental car that was paid for by a woman who shares a Durham address with Haydn Thomas, a convicted felon whose rented sports utility vehicle Hairston was driving when he was arrested last month."

You can try and spin it how you want to but we all know that Thomas rented the Yukon for PJ just like the Camero was rented for PJ.  What's the likely hood that the women living in the house knows and rented a car for PJ but Thomas doesn't know PJ even though PJ was driving the Yukon?   

If the firearm was obtained legally why was it thrown out of the car along with a bigger bag of weed?

That looks like a white Camero SS to me and PJ is driving.

Just like Lance Thomas was given 100k throwing out his amateurism and thereby vacating Duke's title. Oh wait that didn't happen either. Get over it. 3-6 game suspension boys.

Actually he wasn't given any money but good try.  Plus by the time that even came out he had graduated.  Why don't you ask Myck Kabongo about accepting benefits, how did that work out?  Did he get a 3-6 game suspension?

He's got ties to a bunch of athletes in the triangle schools including a former Duke Football player.  Uh Oh....

 

 

This could get Ugly, they've got tweets from Fats and the club promoter involving a ton of former triangle athletes. A reporter is looking into rental history from the Fats address and to see if NC St and Duke are involved more then whats mentioned about the former football player at Duke.

He doesn't seem to be involved with any NC State players and the only Duke player was Scott. Callie Rivers followed him on twitter but she is Strickland's girlfriend and he seemed to be around Fats a lot.

So the car was rented by someone who knows someone who is a felon, and lent to PJ...  Maybe by the felon himself and lent to PJ by someone else...  Good thing the felon isn't an agent or a booster...  That would be against NCAA rules...

 

As for why a gun, a bag of weed, and whatever else was thrown out the window by a 20 year old kid (or the acquaintance of the kid), who plays for a high profile university and knows he's gonna be in huge trouble...  Umm, yeah, I can see why he/they panicked and threw the stuff out the window...

 

As for spinning it...  Well, we all know who rented the Yukon...  Sure...  We all also know who killed Ron and Nicole...  We all know Casey Anthony is guilty...  And we all knew this one woman I used to work with was really a dude...  Fact is it doesn't matter what you 'know'...  It only matters what you can prove...  Cool video, though...

 

As for what PJ is really guilty of (so far)?  Well, there's no disputing he's guilty of being a shithead, having poor judgment, being a kid, being a poor teammate, and having some really bad tattoos...  By the time this is all over with, there will probably be more he's found guilty of...  But as of right now, that's about it...

The rented Camaro Hairston was driving while cited for speeding in May was also cited by UNC police for two parking citations, school records show. The first ticket was issued April 15 for not having a valid permit and has not been paid. Thomas returned the car to Hertz at 8:31 p.m. that night, ending a rental period that began March 25.

The second ticket, also an unpaid $40 fine for not having a valid permit, was issued May 28, two weeks after Hairston’s speeding ticket. The car was rented to Farrington at that time. Her rental period lasted nearly two months, from April 25-June 17.

I just think you guys have your heads in the sand like this is not a big deal. I have no doubt PJ will be kicked off the team and probably LM as well, you guys need to worry about ramifications of Fats and his unc dentist "friends". There should be some more stuff come out by the end of the week.
