House arrest likely punishment for arrested UCLA players

LiAngelo Ball, two other UCLA players released after arrest in China

UCLA's freshman basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley are making headlines. The others could not be reached.

The Post reported the team's coach, Steve Alford, had stayed in Hangzhou until his players were released.

Ball, Riley and Hill were questioned about allegedly stealing from a Louis Vuitton store during the team's visit to Hangzhou, home of the game's sponsor, e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.

A UCLA spokesman did not confirm or deny the information, referring to the school's statement that it was cooperating with local authorities.

The sources said police had released the three on condition that they remain at their luxury hotel in Hangzhou while the legal process plays out.

If the three are arrested, an investigation could take up to two additional months before prosecutors bring formal charges.

The UCLA basketball team is visiting China for its season opener against Georgia Tech, which will take place Saturday at Shanghai's Baoshan Arena.

The Chinese courts are controlled by the ruling Communist Party.

The shoplifting reports threaten that image, which has included LaVar Ball's creation of the "Big Baller Brand" shoe and apparel line "inspired" by his three sons.

Chinese foreign ministry officials previously said that the Chinese government had reported the incident to U.S. officials.

A US State Department official said: "We are aware of reports of three US citizens arrested in China and stand ready to assist".

LaVar, Tina and LaMelo Ball went to China to watch LiAngelo play his first game as a Bruin and promote the opening of a Big Baller Brand pop-up shop in Shanghai.

"I'm going to wait until I get more intel on what's going on", LaVar told ESPN on Wednesday.
