Hoops coach pleads not guilty for punch that killed Boca Raton man

Hoops coach pleads not guilty for punch that killed Boca Raton man

Men's Assistant Basketball Coach has been charged after punching a man who later died, according to CBS.

Szabo was reportedly trying to return to his brother's Long Island City hotel room in the early hours of Sunday morning with a dead phone battery.

Jones' lawyer made the statement after his client was arraigned on a misdemeanor assault charge Thursday night at Queens Criminal Court for hitting Florida resident Sabor Szabo. Jones was released on his own recognizance and was ordered to return to court on October 2.

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.

Per the New York Post, the medical examiner has yet to determine if the punch allegedly thrown by Jones led to Szabo's death, and the charges against him could change.

The man fell to the pavement and hit his head. The victim thought the vehicle was his Uber ride.

Police say Jones confronted Sandor Szabo on a Queens street around 1:15 a.m. Sunday.

Police said the suspect left the scene in a white SUV.

In a statement, Wake Forest said the school would comment further once it gathered more information.

Jones was with his family after the court session, his attorney, Alain Massena, told the AP.

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. His family says he was visiting NY from Boca Raton for a wedding.

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