UCLA defensive back Ishmael Adams arrested for robbery

UCLA defensive back Ishmael Adams has been arrested on suspicion of robbery on campus. His bail is set at $100,000.

Adams was taken into custody at 3:36 a.m. on Sunday, and according to UCLA, allegedly used force to take a cell phone away from an Uber driver.

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

Adams is set to make his first appearance in court on Tuesday. The Daily Bruin first reported the news of his arrest.

The redshirt junior was the lone Bruin to make the All-Pac-12 first-team defense last season, returning two interceptions for touchdowns. He was set to play mostly at nickelback this season. Adams also returned 26 kickoffs for 591 yards and a touchdown.
