P.J. Hairston, the former University of North Carolina Tar Heel basketball player whose record of traffic violations saw him suspended from the team in 2013, was arrested this week in Wilmington on an outstanding warrant.

According to Wrightsville Beach Police Chief Dan House, his officers pulled over a man driving Hairston's car and figured out that the owner was wanted on a charge of harassing communication.

Hairston, 24, was out on bond within hours.

It was unclear what Hairston, who is currently on the roster of the D-League Rio Grande Vipers, was doing in Wilmington.
