Three UCLA men's basketball players who were being held in China for allegedly shoplifting from a Louis Vuitton boutique are on their way home. LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley spent nearly a week on house arrest at their hotel in Hangzhou, China, by police order before being released and allowed to return to the US.
#45 said that he had advocated for the release of players, who were in China for the PAC-12 exhibition games. "I had a great conversation" with Chinese President Xi Jinping, Trump told reporters. "What they did was unfortunate. You're talking about very long prison sentences. They do not play games. He was terrific and they're working on it right now." The three were questioned last week by authorities for allegedly stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store near the team's hotel in Hangzhou. They were released on bail early Wednesday morning and had been ordered to remain at a hotel in Hangzhou since. Apparently, there is surveillance footage of the three stealing from three stores in a high-end shopping center a source told ESPN. According to The Washington Post, An anonymous U.S. official has confirmed that "charges against the three players have been reduced." Looks like Trump has finally done something decent for change considering his September Twitter attack on NFL players who kneeled in protest of police brutality against black men during the national anthem. What do you think about what the boys are being accused of? How do you think Trump handled this situation? Of course family, we're keeping our eyes on him. #staywoke ✊🏾
