Report: Second rental links Hairston to convicted felon

Jul. 08, 2013 @ 08:58 PM

North Carolina basketball player P.J. Hairston was driving a rental car registered to a woman who shares an address with convicted felon Haydn “Fats” Thomas when Hairston was cited for speeding May 13, according to a rental receipt obtained by USA Today.

The speeding citation came while Hairston was driving a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, rented by Catinia Farrington, whose Durham address is the same as that of Thomas according to the USA Today report.

Hairston, UNC’s leading scorer last season, was also driving a 2013 GMC Yukon rented by Thomas when he was arrested last month on possession of marijuana charges at a license checkpoint in Durham.

Thomas previously told USA Today that he did not know Hairston. 

Thomas reportedly loaned the Yukon to friend Miykael Faulcon, one of two passengers in the vehicle arrested along with Hairston.
