Terrence Jones arrested for stomping on homeless man

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

The second-year Rockets forward will be in court on Wednesday.

Portland police arrested Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones after "he yelled at a homeless man and stomped on his leg" early Wednesday morning, according to KATU.com. The incident happened at about 2 a.m. local time.

Per police reports, an officer watched a man later identified as Jones "walk by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping," before he "yelled, 'Wake up,' then raised his leg and stomped down on one of the man’s legs." The victim only received minor injuries that didn't command immediate medical attention.

The second-year NBA player was officially charged with harassment and will attend a court date Wednesday.

A Portland native who starred for the local Jefferson High School, Jones later played for the University of Kentucky before being selected in the first round of the 2012 NBA Draft by Houston. It's currently unclear how the team will handle this matter.
