DURHAM, N.C. -

A felon linked to rental cars driven by Tar Heels basketball player P.J. Hairston has pleaded not guilty to drug and weapons charges.

Haydn Patrick "Fats" Thomas is charged with possession of a firearm by a felon; drug possession with intent to distribute; maintaining a dwelling to distribute; and possession of drug paraphernalia from a December arrest.

His plea Tuesday came after attorney John R. Griffin III and assistant district attorney Tom Crosby discussed a plea deal for more than an hour.

Griffin told Superior Court Judge Jim Hardin the sides "are very close ... to resolving this matter." Thomas's next hearing is scheduled for the week of Nov. 18.

Thomas' name or address appeared on rental records for vehicles driven by Hairston during traffic stops in May and June.
