CHAPEL HILL — Ty Lawson's court appearance, once slated for Tuesday, has been continued again, this time to Aug. 19.
He is scheduled to appear in a Chapel Hill court then on charges of driving after consuming alcohol while underage and driving with a revoked license.
Chapel Hill police officer C. Shehan arrested Lawson, 20, at 2:33 a.m. on June 6 on North Columbia St., in the heart of town. The officer stopped Lawson, who was alone in a 2005 four-door Chevrolet with Maryland plates, after hearing loud music coming from the car.
Shehan suspected that Lawson had been drinking, conducted a field sobriety test and found probable cause to charge him with the misdemeanors, Blue said.
State law prohibits anyone under 21 from driving after drinking any amount of alcohol.
