Rest easy, LaVar Ball. Your son is coming home.
According to the Wall Street Journal, UCLA freshmen LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill are being allowed to return to America today after being detained in China for shoplifting. Their release comes hours after President Donald Trump spoke with China’s president Xi Jinping, who promised the players would be treated “fairly and expeditiously.”
Last Tuesday, the trio was caught trying to steal sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, China prior to UCLA’s exhibition game vs. Georgia Tech. They were released on bail Wednesday morning and have been held at a hotel since then. Now, they’re on a Delta flight home.
