UCLA defensive back Ishmael Adams was charged with misdemeanor battery on Monday, according to the Los Angeles city attorney’s office.
He is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 16.
The redshirt junior had been suspended for the first three games of the season following his arrest on Aug. 30 on suspicion of robbery. He allegedly used force to steal a cell phone from an Uber driver.
Head coach Jim Mora reinstated him on Sept. 22, after the Los Angeles County district attorney declined to pursue felony charges.
“We feel as a program that he’s missed a quarter of his season,” Mora said then. “He’s shown remorse for the actions that he’s taken. He’s accepted responsibility. He’s accepted the consequences. He’s apologized profusely to his team, his teammates, this staff, and he’s come back with a great attitude.
“So we’re going to move forward that way. If things change, we’ll adjust.”
Adams had started 26 straight games for the Bruins until his suspension. He has recorded eight tackles, two pass breakups and an interception since his return.
UPDATE: Jim Mora said on Tuesday that Ishmael Adams’ status with the team has not changed.
