Investigators say that Jones got out and punched Szabo in the face; his head hit the pavement when he fell back and he lost consciousness.

Jones was arrested and charged on Thursday for assaulting a tourist in Queens, per a police report obtained by Sports Illustrated.

A former UCF basketball coach is accused of punching and killing a tourist in New York City over the weekend.

Jamill Jones, 35, was arrested Thursday in connection with the death of Sandor Szabo, of Boca Raton, Florida.

The death of a Florida man who police say was punched in the face while visiting New York City for a wedding was ruled a homicide caused by blunt impact to his head, the city's medical examiner's office said Friday.

A person familiar with the investigation told The Associated Press that Szabo may have been drunkenly knocking on auto windows before Jones allegedly confronted him. He's due back in court October 2.
