College basketball coach pleads not guilty in punch that killed tourist

College basketball coach pleads not guilty in punch that killed tourist

Jamill Jones, an assistant coach for Wake Forest's men's basketball program, has been charged with assault following an incident early Sunday morning, police said Thursday according to Larry Celona of the New York Post.

Police arrested a college basketball coach Thursday after a Florida tourist, in Queens for his stepsister's wedding, died after a punch to the face.

Jones, 35, has been charged with misdemeanor and third degree assault after a Florida tourist, also in New York City, mistook Jones for an Uber driver.

A witness told Associated Press Mr Szabo may have been intoxicated and knocked on a number of vehicle windows before Jones allegedly hit him.

Guardiola opted for only one significant new recruit, landing Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez from Leicester in a £60 million swoop. Klopp landed Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker for £66 million and paid £52 million for RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita.

Police say Jones confronted Sandor Szabo on a Queens street around 1:15 a.m. Sunday. 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 was with his family after the court session, his attorney, Alain Massena, told the AP. He was placed on life support and later died.

"The Jones family sends 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.
