UNC releases public records after judge's ruling


RALEIGH, NC (AP) -- North Carolina has released documents showing a group of Tar Heel football players accumulated more than $13,000 in parking citations over a 3½-year period.

A judge had ruled in April that the school withheld documents it should have provided to requesting media outlets covering the NCAA investigation into the football program.

The university says not all of the 11 players requested by the media had received tickets. The university says student-athletes "do not receive special treatment" and "are expected" to pay parking fines like any student, though it didn't say whether fines were paid.

The school says it found that each car was registered to the student, a parent or grandparent, or a fellow student.
