College Basketball Coach Arrested In Deadly Attack On Tourist

Wake Forest assistant men's basketball coach Jamill Jones has been arrested and charged with third-degree assault in connection with the death of a 35-year-old Florida man who was in New York City for a wedding.

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.

The New York Post cited law enforcement sources in reporting that a local resident confronted Szabo about the noise he was making, and that Szabo hit that person in the face. He was arraigned today on a misdemeanor assault charge and released on his own recognizance after entering his plea.

Police say a college basketball coach threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on his vehicle window thinking it was his Uber ride. The SUV's driver stepped out and, "following a confrontation", punched Szabo, who fell back and hit his head on the concrete sidewalk, according to police. 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.

When the man allegedly banged on Jones' auto, the second-year Wake Forest coach reportedly punched him. Jones then got out and punched him in the face before fleeing the scene.

The 25-year-old began his career at Benfica, with his career highlight being a European Championship win with Portugal in 2016. Barcelona can buy the centre-half back for around £30m if he does well at Goodison but, for now, he is an Everton player.

NYPD issued a Crime Stoppers alert to help find Jones who later turned himself in with an attorney.

Wake Forest released a statement Thursday night saying, "We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information".
