PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones has been arrested and accused of stomping on a homeless man’s leg, police say.

Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson says the incident happened early Wednesday outside a downtown nightclub. A sergeant saw the 6-foot-9 Jones walk by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping and yell “Wake Up!” before lifting his foot and stomping on the legs of one.

Jones was booked into the Multnomah County Jail on a harassment charge.

The homeless man, identified as 46-year-old Daniel Kellerher, had a minor injury that did not require immediate medical attention.

Jones graduated from Portland’s Jefferson High School before attending the University of Kentucky, where he was part of the 2012 NCAA championship team. He averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 19 games last season as a rookie.

Rockets spokeswoman Tracey Hughes said the team had no comment, and Jones’ agent, Arn Tellem, did not immediately return a phone message left with his secretary Wednesday.

    jhuff, get off this site because your lame comments are not welcomed. Go hide behind your white sheet and take this with you…..White people enslaved black people for hundreds of years. White people forced black people to work for no money, lose all connections with their African culture, lose their native language, separated them from their families, raped the women, beat them, and treated them like animals for CENTURIES. White people then “freed” them which meant setting them loose in the very racist south where some sore loser racists were just itching to lynch someone. For well over one hundred years after slavery was outlawed, black people still did not have any rights. They were not allowed to attend good schools, get good jobs, or live in good neighborhoods. And we’re just supposed to forget any of this ever happened because it makes you feel uncomfortable?
