Reports say Wake Forest assistant basketball coach arrested following fatal altercation

Former UCF assistant coach Jamil Jones was arrested and charged with assault after punching a man in New York City who later died.

The New York Daily News and television station WPIX reported that Jamill Jones, a Wake coach since May 2017, was placed under arrest Thursday in Queens, N.Y., after he surrendered to police with his lawyer by his side.

He reportedly knocked on the window of a parked SUV on 29th Street near 41st Ave.

Security camera video shows Jones then leaving the area in a white SUV, police said.
