LONG ISLAND CITY, Queens —-- (WPIX) -- Police arrested a college basketball coach Thursday after a Florida tourist, in Queens for his stepsister's wedding, died after a punch to the face.

Wake Forest University assistant coach Jamill Jones, 35, of Kernersville, N.C. was charged with assault after turning himself in to police, officials said. He allegedly punched Sandor Szabo in the face, knocking him to the pavement, after Szabo knocked on the window of Jones' SUV. Szabo thought the SUV was his Uber back to his hotel. The driver fled the scene and Szabo was rushed to the hospital, where he died Tuesday.

Jones was released without bail following his Thursday night arraignment.
