    Wake Forest assistant basketball coach Jamill Jones, 35, surrendered to the police Thursday in New York after he was charged in connection with the death of a man who mistook Jones’s car for his Uber ride, reports say.

    Citing police, NBC New York reports that Jones attacked Sandor Szabo around 1:15 a.m. Sunday in Queens, after Szabo knocked on Jones’s car window, thinking it was his Uber.

    The Associated Press writes:

    A person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press that Szabo may have been drunkenly knocking on car windows before Jones allegedly confronted him. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to speak publicly.

    The coach got out, followed Szabo to the sidewalk, clocked him and sped off, police said. Szabo never regained consciousness and was taken off life support Tuesday.

    The blow reportedly caused Szabo, also 35, to fall and hit his head on the sidewalk. Jones was charged with third-degree assault. On Thursday night, Jones pleaded not guilty and was released. His next court date is set for Oct. 2.

    Should be. Assuming the article is correct about how it all happened...If you assault someone and they hit the ground and don't move, and then you don't try to get them help -- you're a piece of shit.

    Edit -- Obviously there was more to this story

    couple more details from the comments that apparently came from other sites:

    - Szabo punched a resident of the neighborhood who confronted him over his behavior immediately prior to this

    - An anonymous 17-year-old witness told the station that he helped the SUV’s driver prop Szabo upright before the ambulance came, so that he would stop choking on his own blood. But before the paramedics showed up, the driver had fled the scene

    gotta hand it to our homeboard. somehow they held out until the 12th post in the thread on this to ask if this would hurt recruiting and what guys we may be able to poach from wake. remarkable restraint

    Ok this makes much more sense, south Florida asshole making a bunch of noise, someone tells him to shut the fuck up and he hits that dude so this coach then hits him back to defend the other guy. Explains the small charge.

    Szabo, 35, banged multiple cars in front of 41-10 29th St. at around 1:15 a.m., sources said.

    A local resident heard the ruckus and came out of his home to confront Szabo, who then punched that person in the face, according to the sources.

    Jones then approached Szabo and slugged him — causing him to fall to the ground and hit his head on the pavement.
