LiAngelo Ball Could Face Up to 10 Years in China for Alleged Shoplifting

(FreshAsFrankie) LiAngelo Ball, along with his two other UCLA co-defendants could face between 3-10 years for the shoplifting charge if standard practices apply.
The sentencing could shift depending on the amount Chinese authorities are able to prove was stolen. China understands shoplifting as “robbing public or private property using force, coercion, or other methods.” According to William Nee, a Hong-Kong based legal researcher, Ball and his co-defendants could be in quite a bit of trouble if it’s proven that they actually stole the items but added, “However, part of it will depend on whether their lawyers, the university, or the U.S. consulate can advocate and negotiate on their behalf.”

LaVar Ball’s middle son LiAngelo and two of his UCLA teammates, freshmen Cody Riley and Jalen Hill, were arrested in China on Tuesday for alleged shoplifting.

According to ESPN, the players are being accused of stealing from a Louis Vuitton store next to their hotel in Shanghai. 20 local police reportedly showed up to the Hyatt Hangzhou to question both Georgia Tech and UCLA players, who were set to play in their season opener in China on Friday. The players were reportedly placed in a room for hours and not allowed to speak to their coaches.

UCLA released a statement on the matter, “We are aware of a situation involving UCLA student-athletes in Hangzhou, China. The University is cooperating fully with local authorities on this matter, and we have no further comment at this time.”

Georgia Tech also followed up with a statement of their own, “During the questioning, it was determined that Georgia Tech student-athletes were not involved in the activities being investigated. They have resumed their scheduled activities in advance of Saturday’s season opener versus UCLA in Shanghai.”

We’ll be sure to update you on the details when they are available.

The Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon Smartwatch




The Apple Watch 2, Samsung Gear 3, the LG Watch Style or the ZenWatch from Asus are just a few of the many wonderful options on the smartwatch market right now, but Louis Vuitton plans to take over this segment in the near future, in style. That’s what they do best, right?

The French luxury label has just unveiled the incredible Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon, representing the brand’s unique approach to smartwatches. The company’s iconic timepiece, the Tambour, has been beautifully converted into a digital wonder, displaying a 42 mm case that’s wider near the case back, with concave sides and the same stylish look we’ve been used to.


Available in either a brushed, satin finished stainless steel case, or a black PVD-finished stainless steel version, the watch sports a sapphire crystal with a fixed 24-hour flange ring underneath it. It’s even water resistant to 30 meters, although an IP rating has yet to be provided.


The Tambour Horizon benefits from Google and Qualcomm Technology expertise, running on Android Wear 2.0, which means you’ll easily get e-mail and text alerts, it could count your steps and it comes with a wide variety of additional apps. In terms of display, Louis Vuitton’s smartwatch has an AMOLED touchscreen and a resolution of 390 by 390 pixels.

There are no fancy animations on this watch, to save battery – which, by the way, promises about a day’s worth of excitement. Pricing for the Louis Vuitton Tambour Horizon smartwatch in steel starts at $2,450, while the black version will retail for $2,900.
