Hairston was arrested June 5 and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and driving without a license at a checkpoint in Durham. But the Durham County clerk of court's office said Monday those charges were dismissed Friday after Hairston produced proof he had a driver's license and had completed a drug assessment program.

Two passengers - Elizabeth City State player Miykael Faulcon and former college basketball player Carlos Sanford - were also charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Their cases are pending with an Aug. 6 court date.
That traffic stop was the second time in a month that Hairston had been cited while driving a rental vehicle linked to a convicted felon.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, North Carolina is currently 12/1 to win the NCAA college basketball championship for 2014. Kentucky, meanwhile, is favored at 7/2 while Kansas is 13/2 and Louisville is 10/1. Duke and Michigan State are also 12/1, respectively.
