Wake Forest assistant basketball coach charged with assaulting tourist

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

A rising star in college basketball's coaching ranks threw a punch that led to the death of a New York City tourist who apparently mistook him for an Uber driver, police said on Thursday.

Jones allegedly punched the late tourist, identified as Sabor Szabo, early Sunday after he was being disruptive and banging on cars in Long Island City.

The New York Daily News and television station WPIX reported that Jamill Jones, a Wake coach since May 2017, was placed under arrest Thursday in Queens, N.Y., after he surrendered to police with his lawyer by his side.

Szabo, 35, was a Florida resident in town for his stepsister's wedding on Saturday. The victim thought the vehicle was his Uber ride.

According to NBC New York, Szabo had knocked on Jones' auto window, mistaking the vehicle for his Uber ride.

The medical examiner's office said it had not determined a cause of death. An anonymous 17-year-old witness told WPIX earlier in the week that he and the man who punched Szabo propped the latter up against a vehicle so that Szabo "would stop choking on his blood until the ambulance came". "We simply hope that the public gives Mr. Jones an opportunity to litigate this matter in the court and not in the press".

Wake Forest University said Thursday night that they had just learned of Jones' arrest and would release a statement at a later time. He has also coached at UCF, VCU and Florida Gulf Coast.

Szabo was "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", his digital marketing company, What If Media Group, wrote in a Facebook post.
