Former Tar Heel P.J. Hairston is in the news again. Reports say that Hairston was in an altercation at a YMCA during a pickup basketball game and he allegedly punched a high school student twice.
The Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell confirmed the news via Juan Morrow, Hairston’s agent, saying: ” “The other guy pushed (Hairston) and he pushed back. Both shoved each other. He swung at P.J. and P.J. swung back.” Morrow also said that “both connected” on their punches.
With Hairston on thin ice because of his earlier troubles, it will be interesting to see the full details on the situation. Basketball can be a sport where players lose their temper, but Hairston needs to know better.
Hairston took to Twitter to tweet about the incident:
Sounds like a incident where tempers got the best of both players. Check back with Keeping It Heel for more details on the incident as it becomes available.
