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.

Jamill Jones, 35, was arraigned in NY on third-degree assault charges, court records show. A third-degree assault charge is a misdemeanor in NY. He was released on his own recognizance and will return to court on October 2.

Police say Jones attacked digital marketing guru Sandor Szabo around 1:15 a.m. last Sunday in Queens, causing him to fall and smash his head on the sidewalk. The blow was so hard, Szabo fell backwards, hitting his head on the concrete. Dominic also told the paper that his brother probably thought the auto was an Uber.

A witness told Associated Press Mr Szabo may have been intoxicated and knocked on a number of vehicle windows before Jones allegedly hit him. Jones fled the scene inside a white SUV, according to the police report.

NYPD issued a Crime Stoppers alert to help find Jones who later turned himself in with an attorney.

"We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information", a Wake Forest spokesman said. "We will make a further statement after we learn more about the matter".

Jones spent one season with the Knights and now is an assistant coach at Wake Forest.

Wake Forest is coached by former National Basketball Association star Danny Manning. He was previously an assistant coach at UCF, VCU and Florida Golf Coast University.

Szabo, also 35, was "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", said his company, at What If Media Group, based in Fort Lee, New Jersey.
