WFU Assistant Basketball Coach Accused of Punching, Killing NYC Tourist

Wake Forest basketball coach charged in deadly Queens attack on tourist

Wake Forest assistant basketball coach Jamil Jones surrendered to police on Thursday (Aug. 9), charged with an assault in New York City that resulted in the death of a tourist, according to authorities. Jones was arraigned in Queens Criminal Court Thursday evening, and he has been charged with third-degree assault with intent to cause physical injury to another person. Szabo apparently knocked on Jones' window and police say Jones got out of the vehicle and punched Szabo.

The family said Szabo was waiting on a ride to take him to the hotel and was knocking on auto windows.

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

A spokesman for Wake Forest said university officials are aware of the arrest. Szabo was taken to the hospital in critical condition before passing away. Szabo, who was intoxicated at the time, hit his head on the pavement after the blow. Massena said the encounter between Jones and Szabo was "a tragic accident and we will deal with it in the courts".

Musk owns an nearly 20 per cent stake in Tesla, meaning he'd still need roughly $70 billion in financing to take Tesla private. Other board members mentioned in the statement included Robyn Denholm, Ira Ehrenpreis, Antonio Gracias and Linda Johnson Rice.

Jones allegedly punched Sabor Szabo in the face at 1:15 a.m. ET on Sunday morning after a confrontation.

Jones' lawyer also said they send their "deepest condolences and sympathies" to the Szabo family.

According to Jones's bio at Wake Forest's sports website, he is a Philadelphia native who attended Arkansas Tech and began his basketball coaching career in Washington, D.C., with an AAU squad named Team Takeover. "Sandor was super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", his company, What If Media, said in a Facebook post Wednesday. He was always upbeat, positive, kind and caring. "We are going to miss him dearly".

Szabo then punched the person in the face, the New York Post reports.
