Wake Forest assistant coach faces assault charges in man's death

Wake Forest assistant coach faces assault charges in man's death

Jamill Jones, an assistant coach for Wake Forest's men's basketball program, has been charged with assault following an incident early Sunday morning, police said Thursday according to Larry Celona of the New York Post.

According to police, Jones allegedly punched Sandor Szabo in the face following a confrontation in the early morning hours Sunday that began when Szabo knocked on Jones' vehicle window thinking it was his Uber ride. He was arrested Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018, and charged with assault.

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. Szabo apparently thought the SUV was his Uber back to his hotel.

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

He now coaches at Wake Forest University.

Police say Jones confronted Sandor Szabo on a Queens street around 1:15 a.m. Sunday.

Jones sent his condolences to the family of the tourist via a statement from his lawyer.

The Queens DA's Office didn't immediately comment on whether it will charge Jones, an assistant to head coach Danny Manning, with murder. "Sandor was super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman. He was a really good person".

Jones' attorney, Alain Massena, told CNN on Thursday night that Jones learned through social media on Tuesday that Szabo had been injured and police were seeking a suspect. He was kind, giving, loving and enjoyed life to the fullest. "We are going to miss him dearly".

Per the New York Post, the medical examiner has yet to determine if the punch allegedly thrown by Jones led to Szabo's death, and the charges against him could change.
