Queens, NY - Police say a college basketball coach threw a punch that killed a New York City tourist who knocked on his car window thinking it was his Uber ride.

Wake Forest assistant coach Jamill Jones was arrested Thursday and charged with assault.

Information on his lawyer wasn’t immediately available.

A spokesman says Wake Forest has no immediate comment on the 35-year-old Jones’ arrest.

Police say Jones confronted Sandor Szabo on a Queens street around 1:15 a.m. Sunday. They say the punch caused Szabo to fall and hit his head on a sidewalk.

Szabo, also 35, was taken off life support Tuesday. His family says he was visiting New York from Boca Raton, Florida, for a wedding.

If the white guy punched and killed the black guy there would be riots. Free TV sets for all the morally outraged protesters breaking windows of stores.

The savage should be charged with first degree manslaughter.

Some more proof, that being educated does NOT make you a better person.

Piece of trash, although it doesn't seem that he wanted to kill anybody , but why assault someone mistakenly tapping your window

Why was he only charged with misdemeanor assault, and not felonious assault? Also, shouldn't he be charged with criminally negligent homicide?
