UCLA players could be stuck in China for months over shoplifting arrests

Lonzo Ball keeps quiet on his brother LiAngelo after shoplifting incident in China

UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball Jalen Hill and Cody Riley will likely face house arrest for shoplifting at a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, China, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The players will also not be permitted to visit the country again. In a statement, the State Department told The Washington Post that it's aware of reports of the three USA citizens being arrested in China and released on bail: "We stand ready to provide appropriate consular assistance for U.S. citizens".

The championship and consolation games are the next day.

According to ESPN, LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill are not allowed to leave their hotel room until the end of the legal proceedings against them. While the three athletes remained in Hangzhou, the rest of UCLA's Bruins basketball team continued their trek to Shanghai to play Georgia Tech on Friday.

UCLA said it is "cooperating fully" with local authorities.

"We are aware of the matter involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China and we are gathering more information", UCLA Associate Director of Athletic Communications Alex Timiraos said in a statement.

Avellan told Farrow that she would not have agreed to discredit McGowan if she knew that was the objective of the conversation. He says the organization tasked a full-time agent, named " Anna ", with digging up information on actresses and journalists.

UCLA has already determined that the Ball, Hill and Riley will not play in the game.

"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.

LaVar and his wife, Tina, reportedly ate breakfast with the UCLA team on Wednesday morning. "Whether in the United States or overseas, we expect our student-athletes to uphold the highest standards", he added.

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".

As he was leaving the hotel later Wednesday, LaVar said: "I'm going to wait until I get some more intel on what's going on, and then I can tell you what's up". "Everybody is making it a big deal".

The players will not play in Saturday's game against Georgia Tech.
