Jones, 35, surrendered to authorities early Thursday after learning that police were seeking the suspect who punched Boca Raton resident, Sandor Szabo, in Queens around 1am Sunday.
Szabo, also 35, was attempting to hail an Uber, when he was struck in the face, before falling backward, hitting his head on the sidewalk. He died in the hospital Tuesday after being taken off life support.
Police believe an irate Jones punched Szabo because the man had banged on the window of his SUV. The coach, who was released on his own recognizance, faces a misdemeanor assault charge and it’s not clear whether more charges are likely, the New York Daily News reports. Jones—who is 35, the same age as Szabo—previously coached at Central Florida, Virginia Commonwealth, and Florida Gulf Coast, the AP reports. His attorney, Alain Massena, described the incident as a “tragic accident” after a court appearance Thursday. source
“The Jones family sends their deepest condolences and sympathies to the Szabo family,” he said. “We won’t be making any further comments.”
