Sequence Point Violation?

Suppose you have a string of bytes, each representing an integer value, and you iterate through them with a pointer.

You have:

unsigned char byte_string[100] = { some values in here }
unsigned char* p = byte_string;

Is it legal to increment p by one of the values in the byte_string like this:

p += *p;

Does that violate the sequence point rule?

As I read the rule, I don't think it does.
