A sergeant who was patrolling the area says he observed Jones walk by a doorway where two homeless men were sleeping. The sergeant then says Jones proceeded to yell the phrase "Wake up" toward the homeless men before he raised his leg and stomped down on one of the legs of one of the men who were lying on the ground.
Officers approached Jones, who was among a group of people, and took him into custody.
Daniel John Kellerher, 46, suffered a minor leg injury as a result of the attack and did not require immediate medical attention.
