Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones was arrested Wednesday after allegedly stomping on the leg of a homeless man outside of a Portland, Ore., bar.

According to KATU-TV in Portland, Jones left the bar and walked by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping. Jones yelled "Wake up!" to the men, then stomped down on one of the homeless man's legs.

A policeman witnessed the alleged incident and arrested Jones.

The alleged victim had a minor leg injury and did not require medical attention.

Jones posted $1,500 bail and is due in court on Sept. 6. He was drafted 18th overall by the Rockets last year but spent most of the season in the development league.
