07:22 AM ET 07.29 | Already in the spotlight, P.J. Hairston hasn't done himself any favors. Another round of legal trouble for [Hairston] -- an accusation of driving more than 90 mph -- has led to an indefinite suspension. Hairston was charged with speeding and reckless driving in Rowan County on Sunday afternoon, according to 1st Sgt. Jeff Gordon of the State Highway Patrol. UNC announced Sunday night that coach Roy Williams has suspended the junior guard indefinitely. Hairston, 20, has had two other run-ins with police since May. On Sunday, Hairston was pulled over on Interstate 85 outside of Salisbury for driving 93 mph in a 65 zone, Gordon said in an interview Sunday night. Hairston was also cited for careless and reckless driving and has a court date in Rowan County on Aug. 30 for the new charges.

Since Stinger's are heat seekers, if his exhaust or block heat is warm enough, he'd get locked and knocked, yep.

True. UNC bought the car for him. He might as well drive it.
