NBA: Rockets F Terrence Jones Allegedly Stomps on Homeless Man

Jul 31 2013, 9:43pm CDT | by

Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to a charge of harassment in Portland after he allegedly shouted at and stomped on a homeless man.

Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones pleaded not guilty to a charge of harassment after he allegedly stomped on a homeless man. 

The Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen writes Jones also shouted at the homeless man. The 21-year-old Jones was arrested at 2:07 a.m. PT with a Class B misdemeanor. He was subsequently released four hours later and is now awaiting a Septembe 6 trial in the Multnomah County Circuit Court, per Feigen.  

Sgt. Anthony Passadore saw Jones hang out with a group of eight and walk past two men who were sleeping on a doorway at around 2 a.m. He then yelled at them to "wake up" and then stomped on one of the men's legs. He was taken into custody around a half block away from the incident. 

According to Maxine Bernstein of the Oregonian, the exact location of the incident was along Northwest Third Avenue. Referring to the district attorney's criminal information document presented in court, Bernstein says the 21-year-old Jones is accused of "unlawfully and intentionally" harassing and annoying the man by subjecting him to "offensive physical conduct."

Jones' lawyer, Kevin O'Connell, said his client will fight the charge. They also deny Jones ever stomping on the homeless man's leg. The man was identified as 46-year-old Daniel John Kellerher, who suffered a minor injury. 

Jones is a Portland native who graduated from Jefferson High School before moving on to the University of Kentucky. He was part of the Wildcats team that won the 2012 NCAA championship. 

In 19 games in the 2012-13 NBA season, he averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds.
