CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — North Carolina coach Roy Williams said leading scorer P.J. Hairston will face “serious consequences” after being arrested last month on a drug charge during a traffic stop.

In a statement, the Hall of Fame coach said he hasn’t yet determined a punishment for Hairston, who has also been cited twice by police while driving a rental vehicle linked to a convicted felon.

Williams said there are “several options available,” including a possible suspension. Hairston faces an August court hearing and isn’t enrolled in summer school. The team is in the offseason so Williams says he will wait “until the process is complete” to decide on the punishment.

Hairston was arrested June 5 and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession.
