CRIME REPORT 2: UNC RECRUIT CHARGED WITH FELONY

Angelo Hadley, a University of North Carolina football recruit, was arrested on two felony charges of lewd and lascivious battery on Sunday by the Hillsborough County (Tampa, Fla.) sheriff's office, according to The St. Petersburg Times.

Hadley, 18, had consensual sex with a 14-year-old girl, according to Debbie Carter, the spokeswoman for the Hillsborough County sheriff's office who was quoted in the Times' report. When the girl's mother found out, she pressed charges, Carter said.

Hadley, an all-state safety from Armwood High School, signed a letter of intent in February to play for the Tar Heels in the fall. Like most recruits in his class, he has not been admitted to the school yet.

A spokesman for UNC said the school is aware of the charges against Hadley and will "continue to monitor the situation."
