Brother of Lakers Guard Lonzo Ball Arrested in Hangzhou

Lonzo Ball keeps quiet on his brother LiAngelo after shoplifting incident in China

This marks the third consecutive year that a team from the Pac-12 Conference, to which UCLA belongs, will play a regular season game on Chinese soil. They were reportedly accused of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store that is next to the hotel.

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

UCLA Coach Steve Alford has confirmed that the three players will not play in Friday's game. In a statement, the State Department told The Washington Post that it's aware of reports of the three USA citizens being arrested in China and released on bail: "We stand ready to provide appropriate consular assistance for U.S. citizens".

'There is a lot of uncertainty around how long they will need to be in that position before there's some update on the situation, ' said one of the sources, who declined to be identified due to the sensitivity of the situation. While the three athletes remained in Hangzhou, the rest of UCLA's Bruins basketball team continued their trek to Shanghai to play Georgia Tech on Friday.

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

China has a history of deporting foreigners suspected of having committed relatively minor offenses without going through the whole process. Markazi reported the three are still being detained by Chinese police.

President Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing on Thursday to discuss trade, North Korea and a range of other topics.

As he was leaving the hotel later Wednesday, LaVar said: "I'm going to wait until I get some more intel on what's going on, and then I can tell you what's up".
