Wake Forest basketball coach charged in deadly assault

Wake Forest assistant basketball coach Jamill Jones has been charged with assaulting a tourist in Queens, according to a police report obtained by Sports Illustrated. He turned himself in to police Thursday morning.

According to a law enforcement official, it appeared Szabo was trying to flag down a ride after leaving a relative's wedding early Sunday when he came across Jones, who was in a white SUV. According to reports, he had left his brother's hotel room, possibly in a state of intoxication, and was banging on cars in search of an Uber ride he had ordered.

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.

Sandor Szabo's employer, What If Media Group, said the man died on Tuesday.

Jones was with his family after the court session, his attorney, Alain Massena, told the AP.

Jones then emerged from his vehicle and allegedly punched Szabo in the head, sending him crashing into the pavement. His next court appearance is scheduled for October 2.
