Caught in the Act

3 UCLA basketball players have been arrested during a team trip to China. They were caught shoplifting at 3 stores, including a Louis Vuitton store near their hotel. One of the players, LiAngelo Ball, little brother of Lonzo Ball who was drafted into the NBA this year for the Los Angeles Lakers, has been making headlines all across the world. LiAngelo was accompanied by Cody Riley and Jalen Hill. A day after the incident, Chinese authorities questioned the trio, who admittedly gave in. After admitting, the players  were kept inside a hotel room by Chinese authorities, possibly awaiting a 10 year sentence. Fortunately, US President Donald Trump, on a 2-day trip in Asia was able to bail out all 3 players with the cooperation of Chinese President Xi Jinping. Ever since returning to the USA, the 3 players have been suspended from the league indefinitely, and President Trump made all 3 apologize for their actions while traveling internationally. CNN interviewed Ball’s father, LaVar Ball, who refused to thank the the President for bailing out his son in China, saving him from a 10 year sentence. The interview heated when CNN show host Chris Cuomo talked to LaVar about him not thanking Donald Trump.
