  • Jamill Jones right was charged with assault in connection with a deadly attack on tourist Sandor Szabo in New York City

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 victim later died.

Malcolm Brogdon #15 of the Virginia Cavaliers bring the ball up court against Tyler Thornton #3 of the Duke Blue Devils during the championship game of the 2014 Men's ACC Basketball Tournament at Greensboro Coliseum on March 16, 2014 in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones attacked digital marketing guru Sandor Szabo around 1:15 a.m. Sunday in Queens, causing him to fall and hit his head on the sidewalk, police said. The Post reported that Szabo was "apparently drunk" at the time of the incident and had already punched a local resident who had come outside to see who was causing such a ruckus.

They have received offers before to buy their share during the various takeovers and received many big offers to sell since. Mr Kroenke, through his wholly-owned Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, now holds a 67% stake in the London club.

Szabo later died as a result of his injuries at a NY hospital. He was treated for fractures to the left side of his face and the rear of his skull, along with bleeding of the brain.

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. Jones was released on his own recognizance and was ordered to return to court on October 2. The Philadelphia native is a 2008 graduate of Arkansas Tech.

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