Passenger In PJ Hairston's Car Gets Probation

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - An Elizabeth City State basketball player who was in a rented car with North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston when they were arrested in June has received six months of unsupervised probation.

Miykael Faulcon appeared in Durham County court Tuesday. Judge James T. Hill said that if Faulcon also performs 10 hours of community service and completes a drug assessment program, the charge will be dropped.

Both Faulcon and his mother, Trudy Ransom, declined comment.

Faulcon, Hairston and former college basketball player Carlos Sanford were arrested June 5 and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession in Durham. Hairston also was charged with driving without a license.

Authorities dropped both charges against Hairston after he provided proof of his license and completed the assessment program.

Sanford's appearance was continued until Oct. 29.
