Police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson says the incident happened early Wednesday outside a downtown nightclub. A sergeant saw the 6-foot-9 Jones walk by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping and yell "Wake Up!" before lifting his foot and stomping on the legs of one.

Jones was booked into the county Jail on a harassment charge.

The homeless man, identified as 46-year-old Daniel Kellerher, had a minor injury that did not require immediate medical attention.

Jones graduated from Portland's Jefferson High School before attending the University of Kentucky.  He currently plays for the NBA’s Houston Rockets.
