Charges dismissed against Tar Heels’ Hairston

Monday, July 22nd, 2013


DURHAM, NC (AP) — Authorities have dismissed charges against North Carolina basketball leading scorer P.J. Hairston from a traffic stop last month.

Hairston was arrested June 5 and charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession and driving without a license at a checkpoint in Durham. But the Durham County clerk of court’s office said Monday those charges were dismissed Friday after Hairston produced proof he had a driver’s license and had completed a drug assessment program.

Two passengers – Elizabeth City State player Miykael Faulcon and former college basketball player Carlos Sanford – were also charged with misdemeanor marijuana possession. Their cases are pending with an Aug. 6 court date.

That traffic stop was the second time in a month that Hairston had been cited while driving a rental vehicle linked to a convicted felon.

Sheriff’s deputy fired for violating ‘standard of conduct’

Monday, July 22nd, 2013


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputy has been fired for violating department policy.

A Disciplinary Action Charge Sheet shows Dep. Adam Noland was let go Wednesday for violating the Sheriff’s Office’s “Standard of Conduct.” According to the sheet, whatever led to Noland’s dismissal happened between December and July.

According to the report, the policy violated says, “Members will conduct themselves at all times, both on and off duty, in such a manner as to reflect most favorably on the Sheriff’s Office. Conduct unbecoming a member will include that which brings the Sheriff’s Office into disrepute or reflects discredit upon the member, or that which impairs the operation of efficiency of the Sheriff’s Office or member.”

The Sheriff’s Office will not comment on what exactly led to Noland’s dismissal citing personnel rules.

Noland had been with the Sheriff’s Office since March 2004. He was in the SAFE Unit of the Patrol Division.

Noland has the right to appeal his termination.
