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

Jamill Jones, an assistant for Wake Forest men's basketball team, has been charged with assault in connection with a tourist's death in Long Island City, NY, according to the New York Post.

Jones then slugged the 35-year-old Szabo in the head causing him to fall to the ground and hit his head on the pavement.

Szabo was banging on multiple cars including Jones' prior to the incident, sources said. 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. Jones was released on his own recognizance and was ordered to return to court on October 2. He was taken off life support Tuesday afternoon.

His family said the marketing professional was leaving the hotel where his brother was staying and called for a auto to go back to his own hotel.

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

Jones, a Philadelphia native, previously coached at Virginia Commonwealth and Florida Gulf Coast. Jones started his coaching career as an assistant coach with the Team Takeover AAU program after graduating from Arkansas Tech in 2008.

Head coach Danny Manning said at the time that Jones was a "well-respected bright mind" in the coaching world and brought "new blood" and "new perspectives" to Wake Forest.

Wake Forest University assistant coach Jamill Jones was arraigned Thursday night on a misdemeanor assault charge and released on his own recognizance. "We are going to miss him dearly".
