UCLA Basketball Player Arrested for Allegedly Spitting on Arizona Fan After Loss

UCLA forward Mac Etienne was arrested on assault charges after allegedly spitting on Arizona fans following the Bruins' 76-66 loss Thursday.

University of Arizona police public information officer Sgt. Sean Shields told Myron Medcalf of ESPN that Etienne was given a citation for assault with "the intent to injure, provoke or insult" but was not handcuffed.

"We allowed him to go with the team back to the locker room," Shields said. "And he was arrested for assault."

An official report on the incident will be released Friday.
