TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — A UCLA player was arrested and cited for spitting on an Arizona fan before being released, according to University of Arizona Crime Prevention Unit Public Information Officer Sean Shields.
Shields tells KGUN sister station KNXV's Jordan Bontke that the player's name is yet to be released, but video from Barstool Arizona shows Bruins forward Mac Etienne spitting on fans in the Zona Zoo. Etienne is then taken away by what appears to be a security officer.
Etienne is currently not playing for the Bruins due to an ACL injury. The incident happened following the Wildcats 76-66 win in front of a sold out crowd at McKale Center on Thursday night.
UCLA statement on spitting incident: "UCLA Athletics is committed to and expects the highest level of sportsmanship. We are aware of the incident involving a student-athlete at tonight's men's basketball game, and the matter is under review."— Ben Bolch (@latbbolch) February 4, 2022
