UCLA players arrested in China still waiting for official investigation

  • Brother of Lakers Guard Lonzo Ball Arrested in Hangzhou

Freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill were taken into custody on Tuesday after around 20 police officers arrived at the Hyatt Hangzhou hotel and searched the team's bus, ESPN reported. The others could not be reached. The three are now at that hotel and will not take part in Friday's game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai.

Three UCLA men's basketball players arrested in China on suspicion of shoplifting a day before US President Donald Trump's visit, have been confined to their hotel, pending legal proceedings.

UCLA had said on Tuesday that it was "aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes" and was cooperating with local authorities, but otherwise declined to comment.

In the wake of the scandal that saw freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hall arrested for shoplifting, Van Gundy felt the need to vent to his play-by-play partner Dave Patsch, who is a regular on Pac-12 broadcasts, most notably when paired with Bill Walton.

"There is a lot of uncertainty around how long they will need to be in that position before there's some update on the situation", the source added.


An arrest would prompt an investigation that could take up to two additional months before prosecutors bring formal charges, Lewis told the newspaper.

Asked later in the day whether he was anxious about his son, LaVar replied, according to ESPN: "He'll be fine, he'll be fine".

UCLA coach Steve Alford said he will leave the three players out for this weekend's game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai.

China has a history of deporting foreigners suspected of having committed relatively minor offenses without going through the whole process.

LiAngelo Ball is one of three basketball-playing siblings who have emerged on the national stage in the U.S. in recent years, fuelled in part by father LaVar's aggressive promotion of his sons as future superstars.
