Tar Heels' leading scorer gets drug charge for marijuana

When a star college basketball or football player gets in trouble it's usually a scary situation for the fans and the coaches. The latest incident involves the arrest of the North Carolina Tar Heels highest basketball scorer on a drug charge for marijuana possession. According to reports, Durham police arrested the accused recently after stopping him on what was called a routine 'license check.'

Student arrested for potential violent crime and weapons charges

College days used to be considered the easy times of a person's life. However, the high incidence of weapons possession and violence at educational venues in recent years raises deep concerns as to the root causes of these problems. In North Carolina, another arrest was made on a college campus recently for weapons charges associated with reported behavior that has the high potential for violent crime.

Violent crime suspect held in home invasion and murder charge

When the police arrest someone on a homicide charge for a recent event to which there were no witnesses, it's reasonable to question the details and validity of the arrest. That may be the situation developing in the recent violent crime arrest of a 21-year-old man as a suspect in the murder of a 42-year-old North Carolina man in his home a few days earlier. Charlotte-Mecklenburg police announced that they arrested the man without incident.

Man wrongly convicted of first-degree murder is released

In a country professing to guarantee extensive civil rights to criminal defendants, there's no shortage of innocent individuals being sent to prison or to their death.

This is the latest in a string of such discoveries in North Carolina.

Man arrested in domestic violence outburst also hurts deputy

Violence is a self-perpetuating emotional explosion that is obviously difficult for most people to control. Once it triggers, it's liable to attack whatever comes in its path. That's what apparently happened in a North Carolina community recently when a domestic violence case also turned into an assault against a deputy sheriff. A 50-year-old man from Hope Mills was arrested and charged with assault by strangulation, second-degree kidnapping and assault on a female.

Police sweep a North Carolina city in push against violent crime

A crime sweep that results in massive arrests in one fell swoop tend to walk a fine line between admirable police-work and denial of individual liberties. When the police make 120 arrests in one investigation dealing with crimes involving violence and firearms, it is likely that some of those charges will be found to be invalid. About 150 law enforcement officers from a number of agencies recently swooped down on a North Carolina county armed with over 160 arrest warrants designed to stem the tide of violent crime in the area.
