Police: College hoops coach threw punch killing NYC tourist

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a college basketball coach threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on his car window thinking it was his Uber ride.

Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones was arrested Thursday and charged with assault.

Information on his lawyer wasn't immediately available.

A spokesman says Wake Forest has no immediate comment on the 35-year-old Jones' arrest.

Police say Jones confronted Sandor Szabo on a Queens street around 1:15 a.m. Sunday. They say the punch caused Szabo to fall and hit his head on a sidewalk.

Szabo, also 35, was taken off life support Tuesday. His family says he was visiting New York from Boca Raton, Florida, for a wedding.

Jones, a Philadelphia native, previously coached at Central Florida, Virginia Commonwealth and Florida Gulf Coast.
