The Kentucky Wildcats are preparing to hit the road to face the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Team is already dealing with some controversy as star shooting guard P.J. Hairston, along with backup guard LEslie McDonald.
Now, they’ll have another distraction to deal with as former UNC player Will Graves is facing drug charges in Chapel Hill after an arrest at a property owned by Tar Heels Head Coach Roy Williams.
According to an arrest report, Graves was charged with one count of possession of marijuana and one count of drug paraphernalia.
Police say Graves consented to a search of the home on Pinehurst Drive on Dec.6. Officers found marijuana and drug paraphernalia in the home including marijuana “seeds,” “three blunts,” and “two burnt blunts,” according to the police report.
A UNC spokesperson says Will Graves was finishing his degree at UNC and working as a part-time video coordinator for the basketball team this semester.
UNC says Coach Williams rented the house to Graves, and Graves paid for it.
Roy Williams is aware of the arrest and is “disappointed about it”, according to UNC. Graves has been in trouble before, being kicked off the team in 2010 for violating team rules.
