WF coach charged with assault in connection to death

Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones has been charged with assault in the case of a Queens attack that led to the death of a Florida tourist, according to The New York Post.

Jones is accused of punching 35-year-old, Sandor Szabo, who is from Florida, and was in NY for a wedding in Long Island.

Jones turned himself in on Thursday morning while accompanied by his lawyer after fleeing the scene on Sunday.

Szabo reportedly knocked on Jones's auto window outside of a hotel in Long Island City around 1:00am, after mistakenly thinking it was his Uber ride.

A Florida man visiting New York City for a wedding died this week after he was punched during an altercation over a mistaken Uber ride.

Jones joined the Demon Deacons in May 2017 after serving as an assistant coach at UCF, VCU and Florida Gulf Coast, according to his biography on the university's website.

He said, well what do you have in mind. "As I said last week, I'm trending". "It was family, then academics and then golf". The Masters is synonymous with Augusta National, the US Open its difficulty and The Open the challenge of links golf.

A spokesman for Wake Forest said university officials are aware of the arrest.

Szabo, of Boca Raton, was hospitalized in critical condition and died two days later, according to his employer in Florida.

Jones allegedly punched Sabor Szabo in the face at 1:15 a.m. ET on Sunday morning after a confrontation. He never regained consciousness and was taken off life support Tuesday. He's due back in court October 2. "Mr. Jones and his family, their deepest condolences go out to the Szabo family".

Szabo worked for digital marketing firm What If Media Group; they eulogized him on Facebook, writing, "Sandor was super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman". He was always upbeat, positive, kind and caring.

It was not immediately clear why Jones, of Kernersville, North Carolina, and Szabo were in Queens, or whether the two men knew each other before the fight.
