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

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

LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested this week for allegedly shoplifting sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, according to The Washington Post.

Chinese officials wouldn't confirm the ESPN report that Ball, Riley and Hill were arrested. Markazi reported the three are still being detained by Chinese police.

Also, the legal process in China is a long one and the trio may be forced to be in China for months until a decision is made. "The hope is obviously sooner rather than later".

Dan Wetzel of Yahoo Sports previously reported the Bruins players could face prison sentences of between three and 10 years if "standard practices are applied" and they were convicted of the shoplifting charges.

During the Golden State-Minnesota broadcast on Wednesday night, ESPN NBA color commentator Jeff Van Gundy blasted the Pac-12 for its decision to send UCLA and Georgia Tech to China for an early-season college basketball game.

LaVar Ball, the father of the Ball athlete family, isn't anxious.

Margaret Lewis, a law professor at Seton Hall University in New Jersey who researches China's legal system, tells the Los Angeles Times, Chinese authorities have up to 37 days to decide whether to pursue official approval for a formal arrest.

"We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China", UCLA said in a statement Tuesday.

In the room, they said, the comedian asked them if he could take out his penis. Roseanne has also tweeted about the allegations against Mr.

"We are very disappointed by any situation that detracts from the positive student-athlete educational and cultural experience that this week is about", Scott said.

"Whether in the United States or overseas, we expect our student-athletes to uphold the highest standards", it said.

The arrests came a day before President Donald Trump arrived in China during his tour of Asia.

Due to privacy considerations, the State Department declined to comment further.

LaVar and his wife, Tina, reportedly ate breakfast with the UCLA team on Wednesday morning.

Asked if he was anxious about LiAngelo, LaVar said, "He'll be fine". Their youngest son, LaMelo Ball, is in high school. Lonzo Ball starred at UCLA last season and is now a rookie with the Lakers.

Lonzo is used to focusing on basketball amid LaVar's numerous self-generated controversies.

The family stars in its own reality show on Facebook, "Ball in the Family", and boasts an athletic apparel line, Big Baller Brand. Georgia Tech said none of its athletes were involved.
