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.

Pressure Is on Houston Rockets Youngsters to Step Up This Season

Aug 13 2014 3:37pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Houston Rockets' younger players are being pressed into a greater role this year, and the team’s prospects depend very much on how well they respond. Can the kids step up and meet the demand? In order to free up cap space to go after Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh or both, the Houston Rockets lost three of their more productive role players from last season: Chandler Parsons (arguably a star in his own right), Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik. Ot ...

Who Will Be the Houston Rockets' 3rd Scorer Next Season?

Aug 11 2014 9:52pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

A retooled Houston Rockets squad will take the floor with fresh questions in the 2014-15 season, and this is perhaps the most prevalent: Who will be its third scorer? With Chandler Parsons gone, there will be a productivity hole left open. There’s a blind spot of offensive creation behind the James Harden-Dwight Howard juggernaut and no clear successor to the role. Houston has a handful of less headline-grabbing names on hand who could be capable of stepping up the ta ...

Houston Rockets Players Who Will Make a Big Jump in 2014-15

Aug 7 2014 3:46pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Houston Rockets are better than you think they are—so long as a few players take important steps forward in their upcoming campaign. Roster fluctuations that occur in free agency can be somewhat illusory. The Rockets have been mocked for striking out on Chris Bosh and losing Chandler Parsons, Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik this summer. More big names have gone out the door than have come through it in Houston this summer.  Trevor Ariza, for example, is hardly a starry acquisition. But he’s a d ...
