Prior to the UCLA Taser Incident, several grassroots campaigns between 2002-2006 were undertaken by UCLA students to educate the student body in regard to Duren's history of excessive force. The campaigns were initiated by distinct parties in response to Duren's aggressive behavior for pedestrian citations.
Cause of Incident. I found it a bit odd that the cause of the Taser Incident was the a student was shocked by a taser. That seems circular/redundant. Shouldn't the cause be that he refused to show identification and was allegedly defiant of the police? StatsJunkie 18:51, 4 July 2017 (UTC) Update tag

On November 7, 2017, days before UCLA opened the 2017–18 season in Shanghai, China, Ball's son LiAngelo and teammates Cody Riley and Jalen Hill were arrested for shoplifting from a high-end shopping center near their team hotel in Hangzhou. The players were accused of stealing sunglasses from a Louis Vuitton store in the mall.

Hangzhou was supposed to be the low-key leg of UCLA's trip to China, a mandatory inconvenience 110 miles to the south, meant as a courtesy to the Pac-12 China game's presenting sponsor, e-commerce giant Alibaba, and as an educational field trip for the players. UCLA arrived at Shanghai Pudong International Airport at 6:55 p.m. local time after a 13-hour, 30-minute flight and immediately boarded buses for a three-hour ride. The team arrived at 11 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Hangzhou, a five-star hotel on the city's serene West Lake, and were instructed to meet in the lobby at 8 a.m. the following morning. "Everyone knew, logistically, this was going to be the hardest part of the trip," one UCLA source said. "The last thing we wanted to do when we got to Shanghai was get on a three-hour bus ride to Hangzhou."
Alibaba had recently extended its sponsorship of the Pac-12 China Game through 2020, and the on-campus visit by both teams was meant to be educational for the students, as well as to allow school administrators a chance to discuss academic programs with each other and Joseph Tsai, the executive vice chairman and co-founder of Alibaba. UCLA chancellor Gene Block, UCLA vice provost Cindy Fan, UCLA engagement director Stephen Tan and UCLA professor Ren Sun all accompanied the team.
After speaking to school administrators from UCLA and Georgia Tech, Tsai held a shootaround with both teams at Alibaba's on-campus gym and spent an hour going over new technology and e-commerce in China with them and taking questions. Tsai, who had recently reached an agreement in principle to purchase a 49 percent minority stake in the Brooklyn Nets, knew many of the UCLA players by name. Tsai has a family home in La Jolla, California -- about 120 miles south of UCLA -- and singled out UCLA freshman guard Jaylen Hands, saying he saw Hands play at Foothills Christian High. "I couldn't believe he knew who I was," Hands said. "It was unbelievable."
UCLA returned to the Hyatt around 5 p.m., and players were given 90 minutes to explore the lakeside area's high-end shops, including Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, Gucci and Prada. Three UCLA freshmen, Ball (18 years old at the time), Riley (19) and Hill (17), walked to Pinghai Road, where they entered the Louis Vuitton store shortly after sunset, made their way to the second floor and looked at a display of sunglasses. Ball attempted to buy a pair that retailed for $730, but his credit card was declined, not an uncommon occurrence for people on a trip who had not alerted their credit card companies of their travels. Ball, Riley and Hill left the store and talked outside before re-entering a few minutes later. The players returned to the second floor, and each took a pair of glasses and exited without paying. The trio then walked across Pinghai Road to a mall with more affordable retail stores such as Uniqlo, Zara and H&M and took more sunglasses, these of the $15 variety, from a lo...
Around 7:45 a.m. eight police cars and approximately 15 officers arrived at the Hyatt. The Louis Vuitton store had reported the shoplifting, which had been captured on cameras mounted in each corner of the ceiling. Street surveillance footage had also shown the players leaving the store and eventually returning to their hotel across the street. Going off passport photos of hotel guests, the officers initially questioned three Georgia Tech players -- sophomore Justin Moore and freshmen Jose Alvarado and Jon Brown -- and one UCLA player, Ball. UCLA was housed on the sixth floor of the hotel, with Georgia Tech staying on the fifth floor. So, while Ball was questioned in his room on the sixth floor, Moore, Alvarado and Brown were questioned separately a floor below. Officers quickly determined that Moore, Alvarado and Brown had nothing to do with the crime and shifted focus to Ball's teammates. Riley and Hill, who had already boarded one of the team buses heading to Shanghai, were taken...
At around 2:30 p.m., Ball, Riley and Hill were handcuffed with their arms in front of them, but hidden underneath their zipped-up hoodies. The rest of the UCLA team had already left on the buses heading to Shanghai. The players were taken to the lobby and out into waiting police cars, which took them to the police station about 15 minutes away. The players were accompanied by UCLA associate head coach Duane Broussard and Pac-12 associate commissioner Gloria Nevarez and were later joined by Alford and UCLA associate athletic director Chris Carlson. UCLA athletics director Dan Guerrero was notified of the situation on his flight to Shanghai, which was set to land around 7 p.m. He was coincidentally on the same flight as LaVar Ball and relayed the news to him. Ball was traveling with family, including his wife, Tina, and youngest son, LaMelo, as well as the crew filming their "Ball in the Family" reality show. They were not only traveling to Shanghai to watch LiAngelo play his first ga...
Around 5 p.m., nearly 24 hours after they had shoplifted the sunglasses from Louis Vuitton, each player was taken separately out of the holding cell and driven to the store. Riley first had to be driven back to the Hyatt where he was taken to Room 651, Alford's room, to retrieve the glasses he had hidden in the couch. Ball and then Hill were driven separately to Louis Vuitton to return the glasses they had taken and were identified by the employees. During this time, everyone but Ball, Riley and Hill believed this was a one-store shoplifting incident, perhaps a momentary teenage lapse in judgment. UCLA and Pac-12 officials at the scene sensed that they would be allowed to leave and rejoin the team in Shanghai the next day. But around 7 p.m., the boutique across the street from Louis Vuitton reported that sunglasses had been shoplifted from their store Monday. A couple of hours later, H&M called about bracelets shoplifted from their store the same night. Surveillance footage confirme...
Each shoplifting incident was treated as its own separate case and required the players to once again travel to the stores individually, return what they had stolen and be identified by the employees working at the time. With the two stores across the street from Louis Vuitton being so close in proximity, that only required one round-trip drive for each player. The problem was, some of the items they had taken were still in the players' larger travel bags, which were in Shanghai with the UCLA team. The Pac-12 arranged for a Toyota Coaster to bring the players' luggage -- as well as the luggage of Alford, Broussard, Nevarez and Carlson -- to Hangzhou. They did not yet know the fate of the players, but Alford, Broussard, Nevarez and Carlson, who were waiting outside the police station, knew they would be staying the night no matter what. Around midnight, the party waiting for the players outside the police station was notified the trio could be released on a bail amount of 15,000 RMB,...
There was some question initially about adhering to NCAA rules in posting bail for the players. Would it be a violation, for example, if Alford had taken $2,200 from his personal account? Could anyone with ties to UCLA or the Pac-12 post bail? Eventually, two third-party individuals in China assisting the Pac-12 took out the bail money, counted the 15,000 RMB on a table in the lobby of the Hyatt, put it in an envelope and gave it to Carlson. He bailed the players out around 2:45 a.m., after about 12 hours of confinement. "I remember the question came up about the bail money and if there were any NCAA issues," said Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott, who found out about the incident while on a train from Hangzhou to Shanghai. "What I told our team was our first and foremost priority needs to be the welfare of the student-athletes. Let's get the money together and get them out of the police station, and we will clarify anything that needs to be clarified afterwards or ask for forgiveness...
News of the incident and who was involved had broken back in Los Angeles around noon PT on Tuesday. At that point Ball, Riley and Hill were already checked back into the Hyatt, while Alford and Broussard were preparing to rejoin the team in Shanghai. The only lingering question was when the players would be allowed to leave Hangzhou to either rejoin the team or return to Los Angeles. "There was a feeling on Wednesday that this wasn't going to last long; maybe a week," one school source said. "Everything had been returned, the players had apologized, they complied with every request that was made, and I think the authorities recognized that they were dealing with three teenagers who had made a mistake they'll never forget. There was no police presence at the hotel. They knew us at that point. They weren't looking to drag this thing out, but they also didn't want the players to rejoin the team the next day as if nothing had happened. At the end of the day, they still shoplifted from t...
