Jones, 35, of Kernersville, North Carolina, turned himself in to police today, accompanied by a lawyer.
The New York Daily News reported that Jones faces misdemeanor assault charges. He was ordered to return to court on October 2. The Post reported that Szabo was "apparently drunk" at the time of the incident and had already punched a local resident who had come outside to see who was causing such a ruckus.
Szabo lost consciousness when his head hit the pavement, and he was brought to an area hospital in critical condition. The family believes he was knocking on auto windows to check on his ride when he knocked on the suspect's window.
He reportedly knocked on the window of a parked SUV on 29th Street near 41st Ave. Jones then got out and punched him in the face before fleeing the scene.
Wake Forest University assistant coach Jamill Jones attacked digital marketing guru Sandor Szabo around 1:15 a.m. last Sunday in Queens, causing him to fall and smash his head on the sidewalk, police said.
In a statement, Wake Forest said it would comment further once it gathers more information.
Jones was with his family after the court session, his attorney, Alain Massena, told the AP. The Philadelphia native graduated from Arkansas Tech in 2008.
Jones is set to begin his second season on Danny Manning's Wake Forest staff after joining in the spring of 2017.
Szabo, a 35-year-old man from Boca Raton, Fla., was in town for a wedding.
