Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones was arrested in Portland, Ore., for an alleged attack on a homeless person, KATU reported Wednesday.

Jones was released on his own recognizance early Wednesday morning, according to Multnomah County court records. He was charged harassment, a misdemeanor.

The incident occurred outside a downtown nightclub, Portland Police Bureau spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson said. A police officer witnessed Jones yelling at a homeless person sleeping in a doorway, identified as 46-year-old Daniel Kellerher, to wake up before he stomped on one of the man's legs.

Kellerher had a minor injury that did not need medical attention at the scene.

The 6-foot-9 Jones, a Portland native who played college basketball at Kentucky, averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds for Houston as a rookie last season.
