WRAL News has learned that notes taken by Durham Police when they cited North Carolina basketball player P.J. Hairston counter the claim of a Durham man that he didn’t know Hairston would be driving the vehicle.
Hairston, Miykael Faulcon, a basketball player at Elizabeth City State, and 23-year-old Carlos Sanford were pulled over at a license check point in Durham on June 5 in a rented silver GMC Yukon. Hairston, who was driving the rented silver Yukon, was cited with driving without a license and possession of marijuana.
The man who rented the car, Haydn “Fats” Thomas, 39, returned it to Hertz near Raleigh-Durham International Airport on June 5, paying $1,261.64 according to USA Today. Thomas told WRAL that he let Faulcon borrow the car and that Faulcon, a friend of Hairston's, let Hairston drive.
According to sources familiar with police notes on the traffic stop, Hairston told police a man he referred to as "Fats" gave him the car to visit friends in Atlanta.

Hairston has been pulled over twice in rental vehicles traced to Thomas’ address, raising questions about possible NCAA violations. On May 13 Hairston was pulled over for speeding in a vehicle rented by Thomas’ wife Catinia Farrington. Farrington rented the Chevrolet Camaro for 54 days ending June 17, at a cost of $3,249 according to USA Today reports.
Thomas said Tuesday he knows Hairston but he really doesn't "know" him and calls them just passing acquaintances. He said that there is nothing criminal, and certainly no NCAA violation, regarding his ties to Hairston. A statement from the NCAA received Monday stated that they "cannot comment on potential investigations."
During the stop Hairston denied smoking marijuana and said he had not smoked that day, according to the police notes. After being questioned further, Hairston admitted to being a "recreational" smoker but that he does not smoke to get high. Police noted that Hairston told them it had been about two weeks since he had smoked marijuana.
The arrest report also stated that a 9-mm handgun and a magazine with nine rounds of ammunition were found alongside the vehicle during the stop. All three men in the vehicle denied throwing anything out of the car prior to the checkpoint.
According to the police notes, Hairston said there was nothing in the vehicle when he picked it up and that he had checked the glove box to make sure.
I don't care to read you long jabber. I setting you straight on the Sweezy case.- Posted by The Rameses UltimatumThis one can't read. Sad to see Red Rage affect reading comprehension. Try reading the whole post, and why I posted incidents that have happened in the last 4 years at NCSU and Duke because your girlfriend, 903 posted this...- Posted by packfan07UNC fan bring up the past because they can't get a grip on whats happening at their school. FOR THE ONE MILLIONTH TIME WE ALL KNOW THE PAST AT DUKE AND STATE ! You don't have your facts right about Sweezy and the bus incident. According to the police report the Driver was the primary aggressor.- Posted by The Rameses UltimatumLet's see, Tyree Glover, coke traffiking. Drew, Griswould, and Putnam dismissed from Duke football in 2010 for felony possession and discharge of a weapon. Tyree Watkins for assault on a female. Tony Jackson. Wow, thats 6 so I'll stop.- Posted by 903 PJ trusted Rodney Blackstock
NCSU and Duke have their examples.
UNC has more examples by one player in the last 10 weeks than Duke and State combined over the last 10 years...
Now on Watkins...
Hmmm...Duke lets a football player finish his degree after being charged with battery to a woman. Say it ain't so sanctimonious Blue Haters.
For NCSU Soccer, Jaibat, Nokar, Nelson, and Ray dismissed for bar fighting in 2012. Then there is Green and Mustafa from the football team. Then there was the "technicality" that got Sweezy and his boyz off the hook for weed...can you say back room deal? Of course the old guy that Sweezy beat up got paid too.
That will just about do it. I've given you a bakers dozen+ to PJs 2 charges. One thing you need to realize before you post and make yourself look the fool, I'm a factual guy, and if I post it, I do my homework first.
Consider yourself BeyotchFactSlapped.
"UNC has more examples by one player in the last 10 weeks than Duke and State combined over the last 10 years" So to show him the error of his thinking, I gave facts to back up my post. He has since run and hid from the Dr.s wrath...
Consider yourself BeyotchFactSmacked...thanks for playing.

Don't know about you guys - but this sounds pretty bogus to me. What was he expecting to find? Why would you check the glove box to be sure nothing was there unless you made that statement up, or were driving a car where something illegal may have been in the glove box? Neither of those are good options. At the very least, PJ is guilty of exercising poor judgement. That's not a criminal offense, but it is enough to further taint the UNC repuatation, and thats shows a total lack of respect for the program, his coaches and his teammates. He is old enough to know better and to be held accountable for that. Bench him. I'd rather have an off season than a better season with folks criticizing the program and the university even more than they already are.

The difference is this: No one has touted a "Wolfpack Way" or referred to NCSU as "public ivy" or "Harvard of the South". Had so many UNC fans not been so sanctimonious for so many years, others might not be so vocal about the fruits of UNC's hubris now.
I respect what you're saying '79. I've had some honest, no trash talk conversations with some State and Duke fans, and their view is pretty much what you just wrote. Not all UNC fans think they are "holier than thou", but I believe there are ones out there that have contributed to your opinion of Carolina. I think the vitriol expressed on this site is pretty much focused on Carolina's fans more than the players (other than PJ at the moment).
You and Objective Scientist always have been fair. I wish there had been more of you in the forefront for the past 3 years and the scandals would be just a memory now.
There were a lot like them in the forefront. They just don't fit the stereotype that so many on Pack Pride need to attach to ALL Carolina fans. PP and IC (like here) often get into yelling matches, or into painting everyone with very broad brushes. Those of us doing our own small part don't get much notice; that's how the world works.
It is hard not to get defensive when some of those at UNC working the hardest to clean this up were the very ones that have been most attacked by those from other schools. They were also the ones attacked by the vocal minority at Carolina who seemed to favor winning at almost any cost and who defended Butch the loudest.
