A former FGCU assistant coach was arrested Thursday in NY.

Jones, of Kernersville, North Carolina, turned himself in to police earlier Thursday.

Authorities say Jones punched 35-year-old Sabor Szabo in the face early Sunday morning in Queens after the tourist banged on Jones' vehicle. Szabo was on life support through Monday but died Tuesday.

Szabo was banging on multiple cars including Jones' prior to the incident, sources said. Jones then got out and punched him in the face before fleeing the scene.

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

The man fell to the pavement and hit his head. Jones was released on his own recognizance and was ordered to return to court on October 2. His attorney calls the encounter a "tragic accident".

In a statement, Wake Forest said the school would comment further once it gathered more information.

Szabo, 35, reportedly was in NY for the wedding of his stepsister when he made a mistake that cost him his life.

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

Jones, an assistant basketball coach at Wake Forest University, punched Szabo in the face, police said.

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

According to Jones's bio at Wake Forest's sports website, he is a Philadelphia native who attended Arkansas Tech and began his basketball coaching career in Washington, D.C., with an AAU squad named Team Takeover.

"He was always upbeat, positive, kind and caring", the company said in a Facebook post. "We are going to miss him dearly".
