NBA star Kendrick Perkins was arrested in Beaumont, TX this morning for public intoxication and disorderly conduct ... TMZ has learned.

Perkins -- who plays for the Oklahoma City Thunder -- was booked into Jefferson County Jail at around 4:00 AM. According to the jail, he posted $251 bond and was released shortly thereafter.

The charges are both misdemeanors.

According to one report, fellow NBAer Stephen Jackson was arrested as well -- but a jail employee told TMZ he was NOT taken into custody or booked on any charges.

Perkins was reportedly in town for a charity basketball game, but that was canceled after Perkins was in the hospital briefly Thursday night for what was thought to be food poisoning.

Harvey the young girls that you have in the office are so fine that I consider them all 10's. I think you purposely hired these attractive young girls as eye candy for dirty old men like myself. Let the girls talk more and give them more camera time. Oh yeah, ask the pretty little one if she would kiss then pretty girl with those sexy black glasses on camera. Ok Im gonna take those young girls image in my head and head to the bathroom, I drank a lot of water, yeah, thats my story and Im stickin to it.

One, he is from Port Arthur. He was in Beaumont for a party for him Stepehn Jackson, Kevin Durant and mutiple other basketball players. He was drunk and the owner of the club got in his face and they got into it. He was the brought outside which is "public". And NO he does not use steroids. He is naturally big so you can rethink that.
