Per a report from ESPN's Jeff Goodman, three UCLA basketball players have been arrested for shoplifting in China. Cody Riley, Jalen Hill and Ball brother LiAngelo Ball were the players involved in the incident.

The incident comes at the heels of the Bruins' season-opening game overseas against Georgia Tech. Coincidentally, claims made against the Georgia Tech program have come to light, alleging that the university and coach Josh Pastner failed to disclose the correct of amounts of improper benefits that two basketball players received from Ron Bell, a now-former friend of Pastner.

While both players involved Georgia Tech have been suspended indefinitely, it remains to be seen what will happen to the detained Riley, Hill and Ball. Regardless, this isn't a good look for one supposed big baller.
