Former North Carolina basketball player Will Graves faces misdemeanor drug charges after police found marijuana and drug paraphernalia at a residence owned by coach Roy Williams.
Police cited Graves on Dec. 6 with simple marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. Team spokesman Steve Kirschner says Graves was staying at the home while working toward his degree and as a part-time video coordinator for the team this semester. Kirschner says Graves was paying rent to stay there and that Williams was "disappointed" by Graves' charges.
Chapel Hill Police Lt. Josh Mecimore says police went there after a meter reader reported seeing a possible broken window at the residence, which he thought was empty.
Williams dismissed Graves from the team shortly before the 2010-11 season for violating team rules.
