Terrence Jones Arrested For Allegedly Kicking Homeless Man

Terrence Jones Arrested For Allegedly Kicking Homeless ManHouston Rockets forward Terrence Jones has been arrested after shouting at and stomping on the leg of a homeless man in Portland around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning, according to a report from KATU.com.


According to KATU, Jones was charged with harassment and is scheduled to appear in court next week. Sgt. Pete Simpson of the Portland Police Bureau describes the incident:

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 men’s legs. The men were sleeping in the doorway of 114 Northwest 3rd Avenue.

‘Minor leg injury’

The reported victim was 46-year-old Daniel John Kellerher, who suffered a minor leg injury from Jones’ stomp but nothing that would require immediate medical treatment, per Simpson.

The 6’9″, 250-pound power forward played in only 19 regular season games for the Rockets as a rookie, averaging 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds per game.

What could have brought Terrence Jones to stomp on that poor guy? And how will this case affect Jones’ NBA career?

Stars Hold Diamond Jubilee Concert At Buckingham Palace

A host of stars have performed at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert outside Buckingham Palace in London.

Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue and Sir Elton John were among those to sing before The Queen, Prince Charles and other members of the Royal Family. The event was attended by 12,000 ticket holders, with thousands more spectators lining the length of The Mall. Sir Paul McCartney was the final act on a night that ended when the Queen lit a beacon to mark her 60-year reign.

Williams was the first star of the night, taking to the specially constructed stage around the Queen Victoria Memorial to sing his hit Let Me Entertain You. He was followed on stage by Black Eyed Peas member Will.i.am, his fellow The Voice judge Jessie J and chart-topping boy band JLS. Barlow then took to the stage himself to perform a surprise duet with Cheryl Cole. Next on the bill was Sir Cliff Richard, who performed a decade-straddling medley of hits and his 1968 Eurovision track Congratulations.

Stevie Wonder took the opportunity to wish the Queen a happy birthday during a set that included Isn’t She Lovely. Though the monarch was born on 21 April, her official birthday is traditionally celebrated at the beginning of June. Between the music acts, hosting duties were handled by Rob Brydon, Miranda Hart, Lenny Henry and Lee Mack.

At the end of the night, Prince Charles appeared on stage with his mother and thanked her for “making us proud to be British”: “As a nation, this is our opportunity to thank you and my father for always being there for us,” he said. The Duke of Edinburgh was unable to attend the concert after being taken to hospital earlier with a bladder infection.
