UNC Suspends Leading Scorer PJ Hairston

North Carolina has suspended leading scorer P.J. Hairston indefinitely after the guard was cited for reckless driving.

Team spokesman Steve Kirschner announced the suspension Sunday night and said Hairston received a traffic citation earlier in the day.

The suspension was the latest off-court misstep for Hairston, who had been cited twice in the span of a month while driving a rental vehicle linked to a convicted felon.

Authorities dropped one set of those charges last week.

Hairston averaged 14.6 points in 34 games as a sophomore last season.
