NYC: Banker Stabs Cabbie, Charges Dropped

“W. Bryan Jennings, a former Morgan Stanley executive who was charged with a hate crime after stabbing a cabbie in a dispute over a fare in March, is off the hook, and now we know why. In a weird twist, prosecutors dropped the case against Jennings because the knife he allegedly used to stab the driver was found to be in the cabbie’s possession—five months after the incident. Jennings was accused of drunkenly stabbing the hack after a 40-mile trip from NYC to Connecticut, during which he allegedly screamed,” You should go back to your own f–king country…I’m gonna kill you, motherf–ker!”

The driver, Mohamed Ammar, “had the knife the whole time,” supervisory assistant state’s attorney Steven Weiss tells the Post. “He had ample opportunity to tell police and he didn’t do that. He withheld evidence for five full months.” Weiss also said that Ammar’s explanation for why he was holding onto the knife “made no sense,” but the attorney would not elaborate. “I simply can’t go forward when I have a witness who didn’t cooperate with police,” Weiss added.”
