Wake Forest assistant basketball coach Jamill Jones has been charged with assaulting a tourist in Queens, according to a police report obtained by Sports Illustrated.

Jones is set to begin his second season on Danny Manning's Wake Forest staff after joining in the spring of 2017.

Police say the coach got out, followed Szabo to the sidewalk, clocked him and sped off.

"This was a tragic accident, and Mr Jones and his family send their deepest condolences and their thoughts and prayers to the Szabo family", Massena said.

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

Jamill Jones, 35, of Kernerville, North Carolina, was arrested Thursday and charged with third-degree assault.

His lawyer could not immediately be reached.

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.

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