Three 18-year-old men who are incoming freshmen at UCLA and football players "players have been arrested on suspicion of felony theft," reports the Daily News.

Joshua Shirley, Shaquille Richardson and Paul Richardson were arrested on the school's Westwood campus on Wednesday on suspicion of felony theft. No information has been made available regarding the specific nature of the crime. All three were released Thursday morning, though only Shaquille Richardson and Paul Richardson posted bail.

"The three men were all Southern California natives and regional stars for their local high schools last year," explains cbs2. They were enrolled in the school's summer session.

Athletics spokesman Marc Dellins said they know about the incident and are looking into what happened, and will issue comments when they deem it appropriate.
