Thumbs down Terrence Jones arrested for assaulting a homeless man

Quote:
PORTLAND, Ore. – Terrence Jones, a former Jefferson High School star and current Houston Rockets player, was arrested in Portland at about 2 a.m. on Wednesday after police said he yelled at a homeless man and stomped on his leg.

Jones was charged with harassment and is due in court Tuesday at 2 p.m.

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.

The victim, 46-year-old Daniel John Kellerher, received a minor leg injury and did not require immediate medical attention, Simpson said.

Jones led the Jefferson Democrats to an unprecedented three straight Class 5A championships and played in the 2010 McDonald’s All-American Game.

He originally committed to play for the University of Washington, but changed his mind three weeks later and went to Kentucky. He helped the Wildcats to the Final Four in his freshman year, then to the national title in 2012.

He was drafted 18th overall by the Houston Rockets, but spent most of last season in the development league. In his 19 regular-season games with the Rockets, the 6-foot9, 252-pound forward averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14.5 minutes.

You're either a bully, or you get bullied. That's how we roll in P-Town.

Nobody got seriously harmed.
Slow news day I guess.

The title makes it sound worse than it probably was, as always.

I'm sure the guy's life is bad enough. I don't think someone who should be more reasonable needed to stomp on him. I mean he's not seriously hurt, but it was bad enough for him to be arrested. Totallu on the slow day in the news part. But that's pretty bad.

No sympathy for the poor homeless man who has nothing? Really? Kinda cold.

Being drunk isn't an excuse to assault another person *or do anything else which is harmful*, especially one who can't afford being hurt like a homeless man who was SLEEPING. It's disgusting.

Terrance you compassionless clown.

How about if we use retributive justice so fans get to kick you in the balls for every time you get sent to the D League.

I've seen this type of behavior before outside a night clubs, also I've seen a homeless guy harass a guy after the night club, the guy retaliated by knocking him out cold
