UCLA basketball players arrested for shoplifting in China released on bond

LiAngelo Ball, the younger brother of Los Angeles Lakers star Lonzo Ball, was among three college basketball players arrested in China on suspicion of shoplifting, U.S. media reports said yesterday. The others could not be reached.

Alford rejoined the rest of UCLA's team in Shanghai on Wednesday morning after the players were released.

The players were arrested for allegedly shoplifting sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store near the team hotel. "The University is cooperating fully with local authorities on this matter, and we have no further comment at this time".

The arrests took place on Tuesday but the players were released on bail.

ESPN shares that the players will not be allowed to leave the hotel in Hangzhou until the legal process is over.

One such former pro is Devean George, who played in the National Basketball Association for 11 seasons, seven of those with the Los Angeles Lakers, who gave his reaction to Ball's situation.
