Wake Forest basketball coach Jamill Jones sent his condolences to the family of a tourist who died after Jones allegedly slugged him in the head during a dispute in Long Island City.

Jamill Jones, 35, was arraigned in NY on third-degree assault charges, court records show. Szabo had been treated for fractures to the left side of his face and the back of his head, and for bleeding on the brain, according to the complaint filed against Jones. He was released on his own recognizance and will return to court on October 2.

A rising college basketball coaching star accused of throwing a punch that killed a New York City tourist who had apparently mistaken him for an Uber driver pleaded not guilty today to an assault charge. The celebration turned violent after 1:00 a.m. on Sunday and that's when police said Jones punched Szabo in the face.

He fell and hit his head on a sidewalk after he was punched on Sunday about 1am in Queens.

The family said Szabo was waiting on a ride to take him to the hotel and was knocking on auto windows.

When the man allegedly banged on Jones' vehicle, the second-year Wake Forest coach reportedly punched him.
