07:16 AM ET 06.07 | After an erratic freshman season, North Carolina's P.J. Hairston broke out in 2012-13, but this week's incident may cloud his future. Durham police arrested [Hairston] on Wednesday night and charged him with possession of marijuana and driving without a license. Officers stopped Hairston and two passengers -- Miykael Faulcon and Carlos Sanford -- at a license check on Wednesday night on Holloway Street in Durham, police spokesperson Kammie Michael wrote in an email. ... [According to Michael, who cited the arrest warrant, all the marijuana charges are misdemeanors for possessing one half ounce or less. It's unclear what legal repercussions Hairston might face, or what discipline he will face at UNC.

Couldn't he have just told the officers present that he forgot his license because he was stoned?

Meh. Hairston'll get benched for the Gardner-Webb game. Then business as usual.

I once heard a defendant plead in open court, trying to sidestep a murder charge say "Judge, I'm a drug dealer, not a murderer!"

Betcha his defense lawyer was sitting there grinding his teeth, about to pop a blood vessel. Either that, or trying his damndest not to bust out laughing.
