Williams: Hairston to face 'serious consequences'

Monday - 7/15/2013, 4:20pm  ET

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- North Carolina coach Roy Williams said Monday that leading scorer P.J. Hairston will face "serious consequences" after being arrested last month on a drug charge during a traffic stop.

In a statement, the Hall of Fame coach said he hasn't yet determined a punishment for Hairston, who has also been cited twice by police while driving a rental vehicle linked to a convicted felon.

"P.J. and I have had several discussions already and he knows he has made serious mistakes and there will be serious consequences as a result," Williams said.

He said there are "several options available" as punishment, including a possible suspension. Hairston faces an August court hearing and isn't enrolled in summer school. The team is in the offseason so Williams says he will wait "until the process is complete" to decide on the punishment.
