DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — A police report shows officers seized a 9mm handgun and ammunition when North Carolina basketball player P.J. Hairston was arrested on a marijuana possession charge.

Durham police released the incident report Friday from the Wednesday night traffic stop during which Hairston was arrested. Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael says the pistol was found on the ground outside the GMC Yukon during the search. Also seized were three cigars and a plastic baggie later determined to contain less than a half-ounce of marijuana.

Hairston and his passengers — Miykael Lael Israel Faulcon and Carlos Devone Sanford — were charged and released on $1,000 unsecured bonds.

UNC athletic spokesman Steve Kirschner said university officials are aware of the incident, but he would not elaborate. Hairston led the Tar Heels in scoring last season.
