LiAngelo Ball, UCLA Teammates Reportedly Freed After Shoplifting Arrest

KTLA shares that the freshmen on the UCLA men's basketball team accused of shoplifting from Louis Vuitton store in city of Hangzhou could be in the foreign country for months. It also helps that US Chief of Staff John F. Kelly remains in personal contact with Chinese authorities and the families of the players.

"After Trump raised the matter, Xi promised to look into the case and ensure that the players are treated fairly and expeditiously, said a USA official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation", the Post reported.

According to the Los Angeles Times, the athlete's Delta flight left Shanghai at 9 p.m. local time and is expected to arrive in Los Angeles around 5 p.m.

The apparent release of the freshman trio comes the day after President Donald Trump told reporters in the Philippines that he was hopeful they would be allowed to return home soon. "Whether in the United States or overseas, we expect student-athletes to uphold the highest standards", he said in a statement. "Finally, we want to thank the President, the White House and the U.S. State Department for their efforts towards resolution". "(Xi) has been terrific".

"China will handle this case in accordance with law and protect the lawful rights and interests of the people involved", Geng said. The UCLA team returned to the US without them on Saturday. The men are scheduled to hold a news conference on Wednesday morning from UCLA's Pauley Pavilion.

The details surrounding the players' arrest are unclear.
