The harassment case involving Houston Rockets forward Terrence Jones and a homeless man was settled on Tuesday, after all charges were dropped.
Via Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle:
“A harassment charge against Rockets forward Terrence Jones was dropped on Tuesday after a compromise was reached on the civil case, the Portland Oregonian reported citing court records. Jones agreed to pay $10,000 to a charity that benefits the homeless to be designated by the alleged victim’s lawyer.”
The incident happened last July when Jones allegedly stomped on Daniel John Kellerher, who was sleeping on a sidewalk at the time. No additional actions will be needed from Jones as he is free from all charges now.
