On Wednesday July 31, 2013, at 2:04 a.m., Central Precinct officers arrested 21-year-old Terrence Alexander Jones in Old Town after Jones was seen stomping on a sleeping homeless man's leg. After the arrest, officers learned that Jones is currently on the roster of the Houston Rockets NBA team.

A sergeant patrolling the area saw a large group of people exit the Tube nightclub, located at 18 Northwest 3rd Avenue, and spill out into the street and sidewalk. An officer patrolling the area used a PA system to tell the crowd to get out of the street and get back onto the sidewalk. The sergeant pulled around the block to assist in case there was any further crowd issue.

While watching the group walk away from the bar, the sergeant observed a man, later identified as Terrence Jones, walk by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping. Jones yelled, "Wake up," then raised his leg and stomped down on one of the mens legs. The men were sleeping in the doorway of 114 Northwest 3rd Avenue.

Officers contacted Jones among the group of approximately eight people about a half a block away and took him into custody.

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

Jones was transported to Central Precinct then to the Multnomah County Jail on a charge of Harassment.
