College basketball coach threw punch killing NYC tourist

College basketball coach threw punch killing NYC tourist

Jones, 35, of Kernerville, North Carolina, was arrested Thursday.

A former FGCU assistant coach was arrested Thursday in NY. Sources tell CBS2 he turned himself in to police Thursday morning.

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

Police say a college basketball coach threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on his auto window thinking it was his Uber ride. Police say Jones drove away from the scene, and Szabo was transported to a hospital, where on Tuesday he died from his injuries. Jones was released on his own recognizance and was ordered to return to court on October 2. "We will make a further statement after we learn more about the matter". 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 placed on life support and later died. "Mr. Jones and his family, their deepest condolences go out to the Szabo family". A third-degree assault charge is a misdemeanor in NY.

As criticism erupted over the interview, Arpaio told the Arizona Republic that he had been unaware of the publication's views. His campaign issued a statement saying Arpaio couldn't fully understand what Baron Cohen was saying during the interview.

According to Jones' biography page on the Wake Forest website, he coached college basketball at Central Florida, Florida Gulf Coast and Virginia Commonwealth before coming to Wake Forest. The Philadelphia native graduated from Arkansas Tech in 2008.

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.

Wake Forest is coached by former National Basketball Association star Danny Manning.
