From the Daily Bruin:

Police arrested UCLA cornerback Ishmael Adams for allegedly stealing an Uber driver’s cell phone outside of UCPD headquarters on campus early Sunday.

Adams, a redshirt junior on the UCLA football team, was arrested about 3:30 a.m. near the Facilities Management building in central campus about a block away from the reported robbery, according to police logs. His bail was set at $100,000.

Adams was arrested about 12 minutes after the driver called police and reported the robbery. The driver also reported apparent minor injuries, police said.

UCLA said in a statement that it is aware of the incident.

“We are aware of the situation and continuing to gather information,” a spokesperson said in a statement. “As this is a pending legal matter, we will have no further comment at this time.”

According to KTLA, Adams, who is reportedly still in custody, was charged with robbery and has a court appearance scheduled for Tuesday.
