UNC's Lawson charged with alcohol offense

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson was charged Friday with driving after consuming alcohol following an early-morning traffic stop.

Lawson was stopped in downtown Chapel Hill because of the loud music coming from the car, Police Capt. Jackie Carden said. The car smelled of alcohol and a field sobriety test led the officer to file charges, she said.

Because Lawson is not 21, he was charged with driving after consuming alcohol. He also was charged with violating the city's noise ordinance and driving with a suspended or revoked license. He was taken into custody and released. Lawson is scheduled to appear in court July 8.

He was one of three North Carolina players who declared for the 2008 NBA draft. Lawson has not hired an agent, meaning he could return to school for his junior season.

Lawson attended the NBA predraft workouts last week in Florida with teammates Wayne Ellington and Danny Green. On Wednesday, he worked out for the Indiana Pacers.

Lawson helped the Tar Heels reach the Final Four, where they lost to eventual national champion Kansas in the semifinals.
