Terrence Jones, former Kentucky star forward and now with the Houston Rockets, was arrested early this morning in Portland, Oregon for allegedly yelling at a homeless person and stomping on his leg. The details are disturbing, as apparently Jones was out late with a group, and sought out a homeless person who was sleeping.
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.
Not smart, but particularly when a police officer happens to be watching and was a direct witness. Jones will be appearing in court at 2 p.m. today on the charge.
