LOS ANGELES -- Ishmael Adams, a UCLA All Pac-12 defensive back was charged with the on-campus robbery of an Uber car driver early Sunday, university officials said.
CBS Los Angeles reports Adams was arrested shortly after the 3:30 a.m. incident, which reportedly took place outside the university police headquarters. UCLA spokesman Tod Tamberg said Adams is being held on $100,000 bail. He was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.
UCLA issued a short statement on the incident, saying they were "aware of the situation and continuing to gather information," CBSSports.com reported.
A Twitter page apparently belonging to Adams shows several posts from the days leading up to his arrest, including one in which he says he's " being attacked by satan." No word on if the tweet has any link to the alleged robbery.
But a later tweet, dated Aug. 29 -- just a day before the arrest -- did sound more inspirational.
Adams started all 26 games for the Bruins over the previous two seasons, returning two interceptions for touchdowns last year. He was the only UCLA player on either side of the ball to be named to the All-Pac-12 first team in 2014.
The redshirt junior from Woodland Hills, California, also returns kickoffs and punts for UCLA, making a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown last season against Arizona State.
The Bruins begin their season on Saturday against Virginia at home in the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.
