Haynes & Jaynes: Putting a Bow on Offseason

Oregon native and Jefferson High School graduate, Terrence Jones, who now plays for the Houston Rockets was arrested early Wednesday morning in Portland.

Jones was taken into custody after police say Jones, who was in the Old Town district near Tube nightclub, walked by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping and yelled, 'Wake up,' before stomping down on the leg of one of a sleeping homeless men.

Police arrested Jones, who was apart of a group of roughly 10 people.

Police booked him into the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of harassment. Jones was released shortly after, and will make his first court appearance Wednesday afternoon.

The victim, 46-year-old Daniel Kellerher, didn't require medical attention, police said.

Jones was a first round draft pick in 2012 by the Houston Rockets, joining the team after two years at Kentucky where he won a national championship with the Wildcats.

Jones played in 19 games with the Rockets last season.

A spokesperson for Houston Rockets told CSNNW.com the team is aware of Jones' arrest, but has no comment at this time.
