Wake Forest basketball coach charged in deadly Queens attack on tourist

A Wake Forest assistant basketball coach has been charged with assault after a deadly attack on a Florida tourist in New York City, the New York Post reported Thursday.

Szabo later died as a result of his injuries at a NY hospital. Jones then got out and punched him in the face before fleeing the scene.

Jamill Jones of Kernersville was charged Thursday morning with misdemeanor assault, NBC New York reported. It was not immediately clear what led to his arrest.

Szabo, 35, reportedly was in NY for the wedding of his stepsister when he made a mistake that cost him his life. As a result, he allegedly began banging on the window of multiple cars in hopes of finding his driver.

According to the Post, a medical examiner's report will determine whether the punch led to Szabo's death and the charges against Jones could be upgraded.
