Raleigh, NC (Sports Network) -
P.J. Hairston, the leading scorer for the North Carolina men's basketball team last season, was arrested Wednesday by Durham police during a traffic stop in which a handgun and more than 1 1/2 ounces of marijuana were seized.
According to the Raleigh News & Observer, police confiscated 43.2 grams of marijuana in addition to the weapon when Hairston, along with two passengers, was pulled over in a rented GMC Yukon Wednesday night in Durham. Nine rounds of ammunition were also reportedly found.
Hairston, a 6-foot-6 guard who averaged 14.6 points per game and made 89 three-pointers as a sophomore for the Tar Heels this past season, was charged with misdemeanor drug possession and driving without a license. Police are still investigating who the gun belongs to.

With Trey Burke moving on to the next level, the 2013-14 Bob Cousy Award, which goes to the nation's top point guard, is up for grabs.
"It's an honor to have Trey Burke selected as the recipient of the Bob Cousy Award," Michigan coach John Beilein said in a statement. "Trey has been the floor leader of our program, a terrific teammate and critical to our success. He epitomizes the selection criteria for this award and will represent the Cousy family with great pride and honor."
Burke certainly had to earn the honor last season as he contended with the likes of Shane Larkin, Matthew Dellavedova and Michael Carter-Williams to be distinguished as the best floor general in the nation.
