UCLA Athletes Arrested for Shoplifting in China Headed Home

Trump's China Tour UCLA Athletes Arrested for Shoplifting in China Headed Home

Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said early Tuesday that the Bruins players, detained November 7, are on a plane bound for Los Angeles, adding that the "matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities".

A source familiar with the investigation told ESPN that the players could be required to stay in china for up to two weeks.

President Donald Trump intervened to help the three UCLA men's basketball players, including LiAngelo Ball, who were arrested for shoplifting while in China for a tournament last week.

The UCLA shoplifting case in China, in which basketball player LiAngelo Ball and two others were arrested for allegedly stealing sunglasses from Louis Vuitton, has now drawn the White House's attention.

The newspaper also reported that chief of staff John F. Kelly has been in touch with the families of the players and spoken with UCLA coach Steve Alford.

"I had a great conversation with President Xi", Mr. Trump told reporters.

Larry Scott, commissioner of the Pac-12 conference, confirmed in a statement Tuesday that the trio were on a flight back to Los Angeles and said "the matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of the Chinese authorities". "He was terrific, and they're working on it right now". According to the Post, an unidentified USA official said the players' charges have been reduced and that the case is moving forward.

Asked about the case Tuesday, China's foreign ministry said it had no additional comment.

UCLA beat Georgia Tech 63-60 without the three freshmen.

The details surrounding the players' arrest are unclear. UCLA's next game is Wednesday against Central Arkansas.

Cody Riley, Jalen Hill and LiAngelo Ball are finally coming home.

The world is watching the events unfold in China with interest, and speculation over what may happen to them includes everything from a slap on the wrist to 10 years in prison.
