LiAngelo Ball Facing House Arrest In China For Stealing Louis Vuitton Sunglasses

Donald Trump asks Chinese president to help LiAngelo Ball, UCLA trio following arrest

Players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley have remained in China while the rest of the team has flown home to Los Angeles.

Donald Trump personally spoke to Chinese President Xi Jinping about the UCLA basketball players now being detained in China, according to David Nakamura of the Washington Post.

Trump asked about the arrests during his two-day visit to China last week, which happened to begin one day after the three players were arrested for allegedly shoplifting sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store.

Surveillance video of the players appeared to show them shoplifting from stores inside of the high-end shopping complex including Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent.

Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times notes that the players are not now confined to the hotel, but they'll have to remain in Hangzhou while their teammates return to the States.

GQ: Colin Kaepernick is 'citizen of the year'
Free agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been named GQ's magazine's " Citizen of the Year " for his activism. The magazine will release a cover story for a different person of the year every day through Thursday.


White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed in an email that Trump spoke to Xi regarding the matter.

A US official told the Washington Post that Xi promised Trump he would look into the case and make sure the players would be treated fairly.

The trio must stay at their hotel in Hangzhou until legal process is complete.

Sources told the Post charges against the players have already been reduced and a resolution is expected shortly. That LiAngelo Ball is the brother of Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball, of the now famous basketball family of patriarch Lavar Ball, has only increased interest.

UCLA returned to the United States on Saturday without the three freshmen, sources told Markazi.
