SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina leading scorer P.J. Hairston has pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of speeding and an unsafe movement violation after being cited for reckless driving in July.
Rowan County District Judge Kevin Eddinger accepted the plea Tuesday for driving 75 mph in a 65 mph zone from attorney T. Gregory Jones. Hairston, who didn't attend the hearing, was required to pay a $40 fine and court costs.
Hairston was cited for driving 93 mph on Interstate 85 on July 28. The school indefinitely suspended the basketball star hours later.
It was the third off-court misstep this offseason for the junior, who was twice cited in a month while driving a rental vehicle linked to a felon. He was driving a car registered to a friend when cited in July.
