UCLA Football: Ishmael Adams Charged With Misdemeanor Battery


UCLA Football has another issue on their hands as junior defensive back Ishmael Adams was charged with misdemeanor battery today.

If it not one thing it is another with UCLA Football. Ishmael Adams was formally charged with misdemeanor battery stemming from an incident with an Uber driver back in late August as he was said to have allegedly taken the driver’s phone.

Adams was arrested the Monday morning before the Bruin’s first game of the season against Virginia, prompting Head Coach Jim Mora to indefinitely suspend the All-Pac-12 defensive back.

Adams had missed the first three games of the season due to his suspension. Since his return he has 8 tackles (4 solo, 4 asst.), 2 pass deflections and 1 interception.

The Los Angeles City attorney had filed the misdemeanor charge today, making way for an arraignment in November. Per Chris Foster of the L.A. Times, the charge could come with a $2,000 fine and/or jail time of up to 6 months. Foster also stated that his status should not be affected with the team.
