Wake Forest coach sends condolences to dead tourist's family

Wake Forest assistant Jamill Jones has been charged with assault More

Jones was arrested and charged with third-degree assault, according to the police report.

A Florida tourist died in NY after he was punched by a man he probably thought was an Uber driver, his family said.

He was taken to a hospital and died on Tuesday.

Jones punched the victim after he knocked on the window of Jones' auto. Jones fled the scene inside a white SUV, according to the police report.

Wake Forest University said Thursday night that they had just learned of Jones' arrest and would release a statement at a later time.

Jamill Jones allegedly slugged Boca Raton marketing professional Sandor Szabo so hard on Sunday that he fell backward, hit his head on the concrete and lost consciousness. He was released on his own recognizance and will return to court on October 2.

In a statement, Wake Forest said the school would comment further once it gathered more information. A third-degree assault charge is a misdemeanor in NY.

"The court made the proper ruling with the charges, and the District Attorney's office made the proper ruling with the charges", the lawyer, Alain Massena, said.

The investigation is ongoing, and charges against Jones could be upgraded, police said.

Jones is entering his second year on Demon Deacons' coach Danny Manning's staff.

Jones coached at FGCU from 2013-2015. The Philadelphia native is a 2008 graduate of Arkansas Tech.

"He was always upbeat, positive, kind and caring", the post read. His family says he was visiting NY from Boca Raton, Florida, for a wedding.

"His handsome spirit and his love of life will remain with us", the company said in the Facebook post.
