Jamill Jones, an assistant coach for Wake Forest's men's basketball program, has been charged with assault following an incident early Sunday morning, police said Thursday according to Larry Celona of the New York Post. Jones was arrested Thursday and charged with assault.

He died in an area hospital on Tuesday.

Szabo reportedly knocked on Jones's vehicle window outside of a hotel in Long Island City around 1:00am, after mistakenly thinking it was his Uber ride. 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 is an assistant coach at Wake Forest, the Queens District Attorney's Office confirmed.

He's said to be "a rising college basketball coaching star" at Wake Forest University.

A witness told PIX11 he worked with Jones to prop Szabo - who was unconscious and choking on his own blood - up against a auto, before the coach fled the scene.

Detectives are continuing their investigation and could upgrade the charges in part depending on what the medical examiner finds. The coach's next court appearance is scheduled for October 2, the Queens District Attorney's office said.
