LiAngelo Ball, the least-talked about member of the Ball family, was arrested in China this week, alongside two other UCLA men’s basketball players… for shoplifting.
According to ESPN, the players — including freshmen Cody Riley and Jalen Hill — were arrested after allegedly stealing from a Louis Vuitton store located next to the team’s hotel.
“We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China. The University is cooperating fully with local authorities on this matter, and we have no further comment at this time,” UCLA said in a statement.
Sources said 20 police officers came into the Hyatt Hangzhou at around 8 a.m. local time Tuesday (Nov. 7) and spoke to multiple players from both Georgia Tech and UCLA.
“They weren’t messing around,” the source told ESPN. “The kids were scared.”
Further details are unclear. Stay tuned…
