House Arrest Likely Punishment For LiAngelo Ball, UCLA Players Arrested In China

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 three athletes were questioned and arrested by police on Tuesday about allegedly stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store next to the team's hotel in Hangzhou, where the Bruins had been staying before leaving for Shanghai on Wednesday.

The three were arrested for reportedly shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton next to the hotel.

UCLA will play Georgia Tech in Shanghai on Friday night.

The SmackDown Tag Team Champions will now take on Cesaro and Sheamus, who won the belts from two-thirds of The Shield. This marks the first time in the history of the WWE championship that it has changed hands outside of North America.

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.

"UCLA is cooperating fully with local authorities", Scott said.

ESPN said the players were arrested Tuesday after around 20 police officers descended on their hotel in Hangzhou near Shanghai, where the team had gone to tour the corporate campus of China e-commerce giant Alibaba, a sponsor of the game.

If there is an arrest, an investigation will follow, which could possibly take months before charges could be brought, at which point the three basketball players would face a legal system with a 99 percent conviction rate.

Sexual contact, like that described by Corfman, with an underage person is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail. The third says she turned down the alleged request for a date, and the fourth says she was 18 when an encounter occurred.

"They weren't messing around", the source shared.

Currently, the players are not confined to the hotel.

In a video posted Wednesday on Twitter by ESPN writer Arash Markazi, LaVar Ball, the father of detainee LiAngelo Ball, said his son would be fine.

Ball's dad, LaVar Ball, seemed unbothered and not at all anxious. "Whenever I talk to him, I'll find out more". "He'll be fine. Everybody making it a big deal; it ain't that big of a deal".
