Indefinitely suspended UNC forward P.J. Hairston pleaded guilty in a Salisbury, N.C., courthouse Tuesday to a reduced charge of speeding and unsafe movement violation, according to the Associated Press.
This plea relates to Hairston's third, most recent run-in with the law in the offseason. Hairston was cited doing 93 mph in a 65 mph zone at the end of July while driving a friend's automobile. Hairston was charged with reckless driving and indefinitely suspended by the school soon thereafter.
The plea on Tuesday was accepted for driving 75 in a 65, according to the AP, and Hairston paid a $40 fine. The UNC star has endured a plagued offseason, punctuated by the indefinite suspension, but also including two other traffic stops -- and one arrest for drug possession -- wherein Hairston was driving a rental car linked to an ex-convict. Those charges have since been dropped.
Hairston is expected to play for the Tar Heels at some point next season.
