UCLA ball players LiAngelo Ball, Cody Riley and Jalen Hill are finally heading back to the states Tuesday.
The three teammates allegedly tried to steal a pair of sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store in Hangzhou, China last week and rumors began to flare about the punishments they would face. Reports ranged from them facing the possibility of 10 years in prison to just spending 20 days on house arrest at a luxury hotel. But according to Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott, the three players are currently on a flight to the United States.
TMZ also caught footage of the UCLA players before they boarded their flights at the Shanghai Airport for their U.S. bound flight.
According to China Sports Insider, the charges were all dropped.
The particulars on what led to their release haven’t been released, but Donald Trump did speak to the Chinese President on their behalf to see what could speed up the process and lead to three Americans safely making it home.
Now, the Big Baller Brand can continue to flourish.
