Wake Forest Basketball Coach Charged For Fatally Punching Tourist In Queens

The city medical examiner's office said Friday that Szabo's death was a homicide caused by blunt impact to his head.

Szabo apparently mistook the vehicle for an Uber that he had called.

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

- A Wake Forest University assistant basketball coach accused of punching and killing a New York City tourist surrendered to police Thursday, according to NBC New York.

Szabo, of Boca Raton, was hospitalized in critical condition and died two days later, according to his employer in Florida.

Jamill Jones turned himself into New York City Police.

While the day was all about the big couple, birthday girl Meghan captured a lot of attention with her stunning choice of outfit. The estranged sister went on to add: 'The PR machines can stop trying to make out she's making an effort - she is not'.

A third-degree assault charge is common for those involved in bar fights under NY law. Investigators say that Jones got out and punched Szabo in the face; his head hit the pavement when he fell back and he lost consciousness.

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

Jones, of Kernersville, North Carolina, was arraigned Thursday evening in Queens Criminal Court, and he has been charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor in NY, according to Massena.

The investigation is ongoing, and charges against Jones could be upgraded, police said.

Wake Forest has not responded to the Daily News' request for comment.

Jones joined the Demon Deacons staff last May after previous jobs at UCF, VCU and Florida Gulf Coast. We're going to say one thing and that's all.

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