Szabo, visiting from Boca Raton, Florida, banged on the window of Jones' SUV while looking for his ride after his stepsister's wedding, police said.

Police say the coach got out, followed Szabo to the sidewalk, clocked him and sped off.

A spokesman said Wake Forest had no immediate comment on the 35-year-old Jones' arrest. Szabo fell and hit his head hit the pavement, losing consciousness, authorities said.
