According to KATU, the second-year forward out of Kentucky was arrested Wednesday morning after a police sergeant witnessed him leaving a bar in Portland.

Officials say the athlete was seen strolling by two homeless men and stomping down on one's leg after yelling at him to "wake up!"

The victim only suffered minor injuries and did not require extensive medical attention.

Jones, a Portland native, was charged with harassment and pleaded not guilty during a court appearance yesterday afternoon. He is now free on $1,500 bond and is due in court again on September 6.

In 19 regular-season games with Houston as a rookie in 2012, Jones averaged 5.5 points and 3.4 rebounds in 14.5 minutes.
