Court case for Hornets rookie P.J. Hairston on assault and battery charge moves to Sept. 12

DURHAM, N.C. - The assault and battery case involving Charlotte Hornets rookie guard P.J. Hairston has been rescheduled for September.

Hairston was due to appear in Durham County court Friday on a misdemeanour charge of assault and battery following an altercation with a high school basketball player during a pickup game last month. Police had issued a summons for Hairston but did not arrest him.

Bill Thomas, one of Hairston's lawyers, says Hairston had a waiver to miss Friday's appearance. He says the next appearance is scheduled for Sept. 12, though that could ultimately be pushed back to Oct. 3.

Kentrell Barkley, a senior at Northern Durham High School, said in court documents Hairston "punched him twice in the head" during a heated basketball game at the Durham YMCA.
