Both Browns receiver Josh Gordon and Bobcats forward P.J. Hairston had interesting holiday weekends. Gordon was pulled over in Raleigh, N.C. and charged with DWI and speeding, while Hairston allegedly punched a kid in a pickup basketball game at the Durham, N.C. YMCA.
In worlds collide news: Gordon was driving Hairston's car at the time of his arrest, CBSSports.com has learned.
The record from Gordon's arrest show him driving a 2015 GMC Yukon, registered to Samuel Peterson Hairston, Jr., AKA. "P.J." Hairston was drafted with the 26th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft by the Charlotte Hornets (via the Miami Heat) less than two weeks ago.
Additionally, Gordon was bonded out ($500) of Wake County jail by Haydn "Fats" Thomas. If the name sounds familiar, it should: Thomas and Hairston were linked when the former UNC basketball star was arrested recently, with Hairston claiming Thomas loaned him the car.
Records obtained by CBSSports.com show Gordon blew a 0.09 (0.08 is North Carolina's legal limit) when pulled over by Raleigh Police.
Gordon's already facing a potential season-long ban from the NFL because of a reported failed drug test. The NFL has yet to hear his appeal and the latest string of incidents shouldn't do much for his case.
