Man, am I glad Shabazz spurned the Wildcats for UCLA. From CBSSports.com: “Ron Holmes, father of former UCLA star Shabazz Muhammad, has been indicted on federal bank fraud and conspiracy charges. He is being detained in Las Vegas pending a detention hearing, according to a report in the Las Vegas Review Journal.
CBSSports.com’s attempt to reach Holmes early Friday by phone was unsuccessful.
Holmes has long been a controversial figure in basketball circles because of away-from-the-court developments that clouded Muhammad’s amateur career. The family was thoroughly investigated by the NCAA prior to Muhammad ever playing at UCLA because of questionable financial dealings that were first reported by CBSSports.com, and a Los Angeles Times article published in March caught Holmes lying about his son’s age.”
