LiAngelo Ball Arrested, Georgia Tech Drama


LiAngelo Ball and two other UCLA basketball players, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, were arrested in China for allegedly shoplifting at a Louis Vuitton store. UCLA is in China to play Georgia Tech on Friday. LiAngelo is the son of the infamous and controversial LaVar Ball and the brother of the Lakers’ Lonzo Ball. LaVar, not one to normally keep quiet, has been instructed to remain silent “due to the legal nature of the matter”.

Georgia Tech players were not arrested for shoplifting, but Georgia Tech is going through its own scandal right now. Coach Josh Pastner’s longtime friend Ron Bell, reportedly violated NCAA rules by giving monetary benefits to two of its players, Josh Okogie and Tadric Jackson (who have both been suspended indefinitely). The story takes on a dramatic twist as Bell and Pastner were “like brothers” until Bell reportedly “turned” on Pastner.
