  • Reports say Wake Forest assistant basketball coach arrested following fatal altercation

- The New York City Police Department on Thursday arrested a college basketball coach in connection with an assault in Queens early Sunday morning that ended in a Florida man's death.

Police say Jones threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on the assistant coach's auto window thinking it was his Uber ride.

Szabo, also 35, was taken off life support Tuesday. Szabo apparently knocked on Jones' window and police say Jones got out of the vehicle and punched Szabo. Jones was released on his own recognizance and was ordered to return to court on October 2.

Detectives told ABC New York station WABC-TV that Szabo had just left a family wedding, possibly while intoxicated, and was walking around banging on cars until he then pounded on Jones' SUV.

"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.

Szabo, who lived in Boca Raton with his brother, always had a bright smile and shared a love of fishing, cooking and family, the company said.

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.

Szabo was "super outgoing, friendly, and an incredibly smart businessman", his digital marketing company, What If Media Group, wrote in a Facebook post.

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