LINEMAN PLEADS No CONTEST
TO CHAR.GES OF ASSAULT
Starting offensive lineman Jon Hall, suspended from the football team in mid-September after he was charged
with assaulting and threatening his girl-
friend, pleaded no contest in Orange
County District Court on Oct. 9 and was
granted prayer for judgment continued.
Hall's request for such a ruling was
granted because the victim did not object.
He paid $80 in court costs and will have
no conviction on his record.
Coach Carl Torbush announced on
Oct. 20 that Hall would not retum to the
team this year, although he will remain on
scholarship. Torbush said he hoped Hall
would play next year.
The domestic violence report, sworn out
by UNC senior Katherine Stanley, alleged
that Hall, a 6-foot- 3, 305-pound junior
from Hagerstown, Md., threw her to the
ground and grabbed her around the throat
during an argument. According to Stanley's
written criminal complaint, Hall also
threatened to kill her ifshe failed to deny
that Hall was abusing her.
The charges ofassault against a female and
conuTlunicating threats are misdemeanors.
Hall is the eighth player in 10 months
to be charged with an attack on another
student and the third player suspended by
Torbush in less than a month.

A Phi Mu fund-raiser-collecting donations for the Children's Miracle Network in a pink bathtub on
Franklin Street-was caught in the panhandling dragnet. The women were too close to a teller machine.
Chapel Hill Cracks Down on Panhandlers
After complaints from residents and merchants and months of debate, the Chapel Hill Town Council adopted an ordinance prohibiting aggressive pan-
handling downtown. The ordinance also restricts simple panhandling within 20
feet of an automated teller machine or bank entrance, near bus stops and on
public buses, roadways or medians.
"Right now, we're simply trying to educate people to let them know what the
law is and how it could affect them," said Chapel Hill police Capt. Gregg Jarvies.
"We're still in the process of developing enforcement policies."
The ordinance, adopted in September, drew protests from students and resi-
dents who said it was too restrictive in a town known for spontaneous humani-
tarianism. One person pointed out that street musicians, a familiar part of the
Franklin Street scene, probably would disappear.
Police plan to issue warnings for first offenses, resorting to arrests only if the
person continues to panhandle aggressively or ignores requests to discontinue
panhandling in the restricted areas.
"The ordinance just gives us a tool to use if we can't get cooperation through
any other means," jarvies said.
A UNC sorority came in conflict with the new ordinance during an annual
Franklin Street fund-raiser in early October. Perched in a pink bathtub, Phi Mu
sorority members asking passersby for donations to the Children's Miracle Net-
work and the N.C. Children's Hospital were asked to relocate because of their
proximity to the NationsBank ATM machine.
Sorority members had a permit from the town to set up outside NationsBank
Plaza, jarvies said. The incident raised questions about the legality of soliciting
funds in the locations where the town usually issues permits.
"The town is probably going to have to re-examine the locations where solicitors
with permits are allowed to set up," jarvies said.
