Terrence Jones has had an harassment charge against him dropped after a compromise was reached on the civil case according to the Portland Oregonian. 

The Rockets forward had been arrested back in July of 2013 for allegedly subjecting a homeless man to both verbal and physical abuse.

Jones has agreed to pay $10,000 to a charity that benefits the homeless to be designated by the alleged victim's lawyer.

The 22-year-old had pleaded not guilty to a class B misdemeanour after he was accused of stamping on Daniel John Kellerher, the homeless man in question. Jones' representative claimed that the incident was accidental and his client did not intend to step on Kellerher.

Things aren't going well for Jones and the Rockets on the court at the moment, they lost both their home games to start their series with the Trail Blazers and now head to Portland for game three.

Multnomah County Circuit Judge Henry Kantor agreed to to dismiss charges against Jones and the decision comes just two days before the power forward and the Rockets head to Portland.

Jones will no longer face any further action related to the incident in question.
