Wake Forest coach sends condolences to dead tourist's family

Wake Forest

Police charged a Wake Forest assistant basketball coach Thursday with assault in connection with an incident Sunday that resulted in the death of a man in NY.

Jones is accused of punching 35-year-old, Sandor Szabo, who is from Florida, and was in NY for a wedding in Long Island.

A person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press that Szabo may have been drunkenly knocking on vehicle windows before Jones allegedly confronted him.

He also spent time as an assistant coach at UCF, VCU and Florida Gulf Coast going back to 2013. The blow was so hard, Szabo fell backwards, hitting his head on the concrete.

He died in an area hospital on Tuesday.

Jones turned himself in this morning.

Detectives are continuing their investigation and could upgrade the charges in part depending on what the medical examiner finds.
