Wake Forest University basketball coach charged in death of NYC tourist

Wake Forest assistant Jamill Jones has been charged with assault More

The driver fled the scene and Szabo - unconscious - was rushed to the hospital in critical condition early Sunday, officials said.

His family said the marketing professional was leaving the hotel where his brother was staying and called for a auto to go back to his own hotel.

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

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.

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. The coach's next court appearance is scheduled for October 2, the Queens District Attorney's office said.

A witness told PIX11 he worked with Jones to prop Szabo - who was unconscious and choking on his own blood - up against a auto, before the coach fled the scene. It has yet to be determined whether his punch caused Szabo's death.

Sarri v Guardiola - the verdict after their tactical battle at Wembley
Pep Guardiola's team were in total control against a Chelsea side definitely missing the tiresome workrate of N'Golo Kante . Manchester City ran out 2-0 winners over Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The man exited a white SUV and punched Szabo, leaving him bleeding on the ground, police said. His attorney calls the encounter a "tragic accident".

Wake Forest had no immediate comment, the AP reported. 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.

"He was always upbeat, positive, kind and caring", the company said in a Facebook post.

He now coaches at Wake Forest University.
