UCLA Bruins junior cornerback Ishmael Adams remains under indefinite suspension from the team for his role in an alleged robbery, but there could finally be a silver lining in his situation. Per Joey Kaufman of The Orange County Register, the Los Angeles Disctrict Attorney’s Office has passed along the case to that of the City Attorney. This means that if Adams is charged, it will be with a misdemeanor.
Adams will appear in court tomorrow morning. He was arrested at the end of August for allegedly using force to steal an Uber driver’s cell phone.
UCLA has gone 3-0 without Adams on the field, despite his posting 103 tackles and six interceptions and also being a valuable kickoff and punt returner since arriving in Westwood in 2012. Just how much his absence affects the team down the stretch, however, remains to be seen.
Campus Sports will update Adams’ story as soon as new information becomes available.
