LiAngelo Ball, UCLA Teammates Reportedly Freed After Shoplifting Arrest

LiAngelo Ball, UCLA Teammates Reportedly Freed After Shoplifting Arrest

They did not fly home with the team, and ESPN has reported that authorities have surveillance footage and that the players could be required to remain in Hangzhou for a week or two.

Media outlets reported that the three were on a Delta flight to Los Angeles.

The situation with three UCLA Basketball players accused of stealing from a Louis Vuitton store (as well admit two other establishments) made all kinds of headlines last week.

The Washington Post broke the news on Monday that Trump, while on a trip in Asia, personally asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to help resolve the situation. "They (the Chinese authorities) do not play games". He said the trio, who had been held since last week, could have faced long prison sentences.

They were released from police custody early on Wednesday and had been confined to a luxury hotel pending legal proceedings. The athletes were unable to play in the game, and they remain in China awaiting their fate while the rest of their team returned to the US days ago.

Trump asked Putin if allegations of Russian meddling were true: RIA
Putting on his best Trump impersonation, Meyers joked, "Oh my God, how did he get that woman inside the box. This is a contradiction to all the information that our intelligence agencies have amassed.

Trump spoke to reporters in the Philippines as he prepared to return to Washington after a almost two-week visit to Asia that included an earlier stop in Beijing.

UCLA was in China for a game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai, which the Bruins won 63-30 despite not the three arrested players not participating.

The case is almost a conclusion and indications are that charges against the three players will be reduced. LaVar Ball and his youngest son, LaMelo, are expected to be in Hong Kong Tuesday evening to promote a pop-up shop for the family's athletic apparel line, Big Baller Brand.

After Trump raised the matter, Xi promised to look into the case and ensure the players would be treated fairly and expeditiously, said a USA official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.
