A Florida man who knocked on a New York City vehicle window because he apparently thought it was his Uber ride has died after the driver got out and punched him.

Jamill Jones, 35, was arraigned in NY on third-degree assault charges, court records show.

Jones is accused of punching 35-year-old, Sandor Szabo, who is from Florida, and was in NY for a wedding in Long Island. Jones fled the scene inside a white SUV, according to the police report.

Jones then slugged the 35-year-old Szabo in the head causing him to fall to the ground and hit his head on the pavement. He was ordered to return to court on October 2.

"We have just been made aware of this matter and we are gathering information", Wake Forrest said in a statement to USA TODAY Sports.

Jones was with his family after the court session, his attorney, Alain Massena, told the AP.

Mr Szabo's family said he was in New York City to attend a wedding. One of its assistants has reportedly been charged in an attack on a NY tourist who later died.
