Police: NBA's Jones arrested for 'stomping' on homeless man in Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. – Terrence Jones, a former Jefferson High School star and current Houston Rockets player, was arrested in Portland at about 2 a.m. on Wednesday after police said he yelled at a homeless man and stomped on his leg.

Jones was charged with harassment and is due in court Tuesday at 2 p.m.

While watching the group walk away from the bar, the sergeant observed a man, later identified as Jones, walk by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping, according to police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson.

The sergeant said Jones yelled, “Wake up,” then raised his leg and stomped down on one of the man’s legs. The men were sleeping in the doorway of 114 Northwest 3rd Avenue.

The victim, 46-year-old Daniel John Kellerher, received a minor leg injury and did not require immediate medical attention, Simpson said.

Jones led the Jefferson Democrats to an unprecedented three straight Class 5A championships and played in the 2010 McDonald’s All-American Game.

He originally committed to play for the University of Washington, but changed his mind three weeks later and went to Kentucky. He helped the Wildcats to the Final Four in his freshman year, then to the national title in 2012.

He was drafted 18th overall by the Houston Rockets, but spent most of last season in the development league. In his 19 regular-season games with the Rockets, the 6-foot9, 252-pound forward averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14.5 minutes.

Great - seems like a guy whose head will cause him to never reach his true potential.

Way to show a lack of class Terrance !

New rule DM - don't draft guys named Terrance.

There has to be more to the story. Why the hell would he randomly go up to a sleeping homeless man and stomp on his leg.

Wasn't there a poster here (I think it was rocketsgirl, but I don't want to say it was 100% her) who ran into him during the summer league and said he came off as being a bit standoffish and rude? Ever since then I started looking at him a bit differently. You always assume that the players on your favorite team are great people, but you can never really know until... well... stuff like this happens, I guess.

We still don't know for sure what happened, though. I could be eating my words soon enough. I hope so, at least.

He's a better fit.

1. Maybe he is shy which can be misconstrued for being rude and standoffish.

2. Maybe she just caught him on a bad day.

I wouldn't think too much over one supposed time he was said to be a bit standoffish.
