Personal life

In June 2006, Houston was removed from a children's basketball camp in Oklahoma because he was registered as a sex offender in that state.[2]

On June 13, 2007, Houston was arrested on counts of indecent exposure, engaging in a lewd act and driving with a canceled license.[3] On September 16, 2007, he was sentenced to four years in prison for violating probation stemming from this offense. Defense witnesses have claimed that Houston suffers from bipolar disorder and other conditions.[4]
