According to KATU News in Portland, Ore., a police sergeant saw Jones walk out of a bar with his friends and by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping. Police spokesman Sgt. Pete Simpson said Jones yelled “wake up” at the men before stomping on one of their legs. The victim was later identified as 46-year-old Daniel John Kellerher. He reportedly did not require medical attention.
It is unclear at this point why the former Kentucky star would have attacked a homeless man who was allegedly minding his own business, but I’m sure we’ll hear something from his lawyer about it eventually. Unless there’s more to the story, it sounds like as senseless an arrest as we have seen from a professional athlete.
