The 20-year-old Lawson was scheduled to have his first appearance in court Tuesday following his June arrest for driving after consuming alcohol, violating a noise ordinance and driving with a suspended or revoked license.
The clerk of court office in Chapel Hill said Lawson's next court date is scheduled for Aug. 5.
Lawson recently announced he would return to school for his junior season instead of staying in the NBA draft, joining returning national player of the year Tyler Hansbrough. With their top six players returning, the Tar Heels will be a strong favorite to reach the Final Four for a second straight season.
