UCLA's LiAngelo Ball, two teammates arrested in China for shoplifting

LiAngelo Ball, two other UCLA players released after arrest in China Lonzo Ball: I'll let family take care of LiAngelo's arrest 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, USA media reports said yesterday.

"He'll be fine. He'll be fine", LaVar told ESPN while referring to his son.

Pac-12 Conference Commissioner Larry Scott has said UCLA is cooperating with local authorities after the basketball players were "involved in a situation" in China, with police being summoned to the team's hotel to investigate the matter.

UCLA coach Steve Alford said he will leave the three players out for this weekend's game against Georgia Tech in Shanghai.

A State Department official had no comment on the legitimacy or illegitimacy of the charges.

ESPN had reported that police questioned members of both teams in the hotel before taking away the three UCLA players.

The war has had a heavy toll on civilians, killing thousands and destroying the already weak health system. Medics said coalition war planes continued flying over the area and hindered the rescue operations.

"The University came out with a statement, so I won't have any further comment on this other than in answering that question-those individuals won't play on Saturday", he said.

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

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

LaVar Ball; his wife, Tina; and LaMelo Ball were having breakfast with the UCLA team in Shanghai on Wednesday morning.

LiAngelo Ball is the younger brother of Lonzo, who starred at UCLA last season before being the No. 2 overall National Basketball Association draft pick by the Los Angeles Lakers.

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".
