After a confrontation with an Uber driver back in August, UCLA defensive back Ishmael Adams was charged with one count of misdemeanor battery on Monday, according to Los Angeles city attorney spokesman Rob Wilcox.

Adams, a 2014 first-team All-Pac 12 selection, was already suspended three games after the incident took place, and according to UCLA spokesman Josh Rupprecht he will not receive further disciplinary actions.

The player was arrested following a robbery on Aug. 30, he allegedly used force to take a cell phone from an Uber driver.

Wilcox avoided to give further comments about the procedure that led to the city attorney’s decision to file the battery charge.

After the Los Angeles County District Attorney decided not to charge him with a felony, UCLA decided to end Adams’ indefinite suspension.

“We feel as a program that he’s missed a quarter of his season, and he’s shown remorse for the actions that he’s taken. He has accepted responsibility,” according to UCLA coach Jim Mora on Sept. 22. “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, and so we’re going to move forward that way.”

The player will be arraigned Nov. 16 at the LAX Courthouse.

Since his return, Adams has recorded eight tackles, two tackles for loss and an interception, and returned three kickoffs for 55 yards.

UCLA (4-2, 1-2 Pac-12) hosts California (5-1, 2-1) on Thursday.
