Being discussed on the ACC thread
and he's been convicted of assault
maximum of one year in prison
this quote pretty much says it all
Jones doesn't belong in collegiate coaching
Reading this story if true this “victim” was drunk pounding on windows of car doors for rides, already punched someone and broke the guys window. I know folks that would have shot this douche.
It’s very unfortunate he died but MANY folks would have the reaction this coach had. I’m painting this as an absolute accident more than homicide.
EXCLUSIVE: Victim’s mother releases footage of fatal encounter between son and Wake Forest basketball coach
The ACTUAL video of almost all of the events, including the guy walking around and the coach approaching and attacking the other guy has made its way on video and its a lot more aggressive than you would think.
After seeing that video, I would say the year is light. Possibly up to 5.
I don't see much of anything in that vid.
It shows the guy was backing up and dis-engaging.
Listen, any time you engage in a fist fight with a stranger these days, you invite the possibility of death or jail. Just like the Beathard kid. A sad and different story, but it falls under the same camp.
I've been young and drunk and I've done it too, but there's the real and not too small possibility you kill someone or someone kills you.
