North Carolina has suspended leading scorer P.J. Hairston indefinitely after the guard was cited for reckless driving.

Team spokesman Steve Kirschner announced the suspension Sunday night and said Hairston received a traffic citation earlier in the day.

The suspension was the latest off-court misstep for Hairston, who had been cited twice in the span of a month while driving a rental vehicle linked to a convicted felon.

Authorities dropped one set of those charges last week.

Hairston averaged 14.6 points in 34 games as a sophomore last season.
