North Carolina names players who received parking violations

Three days after receiving their official Notice of Allegations from the NCAA, the University of North Carolina has released the names of eight football players who, together, combined for 317 parking tickets totaling over $13,000 over three years (2007-10).

They are linebacker Bruce Carter; defensive backs Charles Brown, Kendrick Burney and Deunta Williams; defensive lineman Robert Quinn; running backs Johnny White and Ryan Houston and wide receiver Greg Little.

The Associated Press’ story says Little accumulated 93 tickets on multiple vehicles with nine different license plates.

Da-yum.

UNC has previously stated that ā€œstudent-athletes at Carolina do not receive special treatment when it comes to parking… The student-athletes are expected to pay their parking fines, just like any other student, faculty, staff member or visitor.ā€

According to an initial AP report published shortly after documents containing the parking violations were released, 30 of the 395* citations remained unpaid.

(*note: the original number of citations published by many media outlets was 395, not the current 317)

It should also be noted that Jennifer Wiley, the “tutor” targeted in the NOA for allegedly partaking in academic misconduct along with several players, was also accused of “provided extra benefits to student-athletes in the form of travel and parking expenses (the allegations claim Wiley paid $1,789 in parking violations on Aug. 20, 2010 for an unnamed student-athlete).”

    Haha, awesome. More power to them. I have quite a few floating around dating back to my time at Penn State..of course, nothing compared to these guys, but they’re professionals.

    Wait, and only 30 remain unpaid? Out of 395, that isn’t even that bad.
