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.

Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets
The Houston Rockets have had an eventful offseason. Whether their moves have been for the better or worse is a loaded, lengthy debate—but one thing’s obvious.  They've lost three key players, and they’ll need others to step in and fill some of the holes they've left. Omer Asik, Chandler Parsons and Jeremy Lin aren’t walking through that door next season. So who do the Rockets have in tow to help us forget them?   Chandler Parsons Shortl ...

Player Dwight Howard Visits China
What is it about the Houston Rockets? Why does Kevin Durant hate them so much? After all, KD played his college ball at Texas—take it easy on the Lone Star state, Kevin! For whatever reason, a big chunk of Durant’s biggest and baddest dunks have come at H-Town’s expense, with everyone from big men Omer Asik and Dwight Howard to former teammate James Harden taking on the full brunt of a punishing tomahawk slam.

NCAA Men's Final Four - Press Conference
No program in college hoops expects to lose more of its freshmen than Kentucky basketball, but next year’s Wildcats will actually have some sophomores worth celebrating. The top returning scorers on the roster are Aaron and Andrew Harrison, the twin-brother backcourt that came alive during last March’s run to the NCAA title game. Traditionally, the biggest leap in the development of a college player comes between his freshman and sophomore seasons. Mich ...

You may have seen this fun, time-wasting game making the rounds on the Internet since Tuesday, courtesy of @BallIsLife: It got me thinking about if I could do that just with players from John Calipari-led Wildcat teams. And, what do you know, it actually works out really well. For a guy who has been at Kentucky for only five seasons, he's already coached more talent than most other coaches have had in a lifetime.
