Wake Forest Assistant Basketball Coach Jamill Jones Charged With Assaulting Man Who Later Died

- The New York City Police Department on Thursday arrested a college basketball coach in connection with an assault in Queens early Sunday morning that ended in a Florida man's death.

Jones, 35, of Kernersville, North Carolina, turned himself in to police on Thursday, accompanied by a lawyer. Szabo apparently knocked on Jones' window and police say Jones got out of the vehicle and punched Szabo.

Wake Forest University assistant coach Jamill Jones attacked digital marketing guru Sandor Szabo around 1:15 a.m. last Sunday in Queens, causing him to fall and smash his head on the sidewalk, police said. Szabo later died in the hospital after Jones' punch caused him to hit his head on the pavement. "We won't be making any further comments". Szabo had been treated for fractures to the left side of his face and the back of his head, and for bleeding on the brain, according to the complaint filed against Jones. He was taken off life support Tuesday afternoon. Szabo's brother said he thought Szabo may have mistaken an SUV for a cab, according to the New York Daily News.

Jones joined the Demon Deacons staff in May 2017 after coaching stints at Central Florida, Virginia Commonwealth and Florida Gulf Coast.

Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones was arrested Thursday and charged with assault. Jones started his coaching career as an assistant coach with the Team Takeover AAU program after graduating from Arkansas Tech in 2008.

Szabo, visiting from Boca Raton, Florida, made contact with the window of Jones' SUV while looking for his ride after his stepsister's wedding, police said.

"We're going to say one thing and that's all".
