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.
