UCLA Basketball Players Apologize for Shoplifting Arrest in China, Thank Trump for Interceding
The three UCLA basketball freshmen arrested for shoplifting in China thanked President Donald Trump for his assistance and expressed remorse for their actions in a brief press conference on Wednesday.
LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley, and Jalen Hill were arrested on Nov. 8 after being accused of stealing designer sunglasses in Hangzhou, and they faced potentially stiff prison sentences…
The players each spoke in turn, all stating they regretted their actions and apologizing. Riley sighed deeply after mentioning Trump.
“To President Trump and the United States government, thank you for taking the time to intervene on our behalf. We really appreciate you helping us out,” he said before sighing.
Ball said he had exercised poor judgment and said he had been raised better than his actions showed.
“I would also like to thank President Trump and the United States government for the help that they provided as well,” Ball said.
