DURHAM, N.C. (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.
