Potentially facing up to 10 years in a Chinese prison, UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill, and Cody Riley have been released on bail in Hangzhou after being arrested for allegedly shoplifting sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton location near the team's hotel.
For the time being, the accused players are required to remain at that Hyatt in Hanzghou indefinitely, according to ESPN reporter Arash Markazi.
In a video posted to Twitter by Markazi, LaVar Ball, the father of LiAngelo and Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo, was dismissive of the incident.
'He'll be fine,' said the usually outspoken LaVar. 'Everyone's making it a big deal. It ain't that big a deal.'
The Bruins were preparing to open the season against Georgia Tech in Shanghai on Friday when the three players were reportedly interrogated and arrested. All three could face between three and 10 years in prison, Chinese lawyers told Yahoo Sports.
