    YouTube - Banker Stabs Cabbie, Charges Dropped

    Banker William Bryan Jennings Faces 11 Years If Convicted Of Stabbing Mohamed Helmy Ammar

    At the very moment William Bryan Jennings should have been climbing into bed at his sumptuous Connecticut mansion, the high-ranking executive at Morgan Stanley was sprinting through back roads a mile away. He was exhausted, scared and - detectives would later allege - had just stabbed a taxi driver in a dispute over a fare.

    The day, December 21, 2011, had started out normally as he left the kind of home - sweeping curved staircase, perfectly plumped chintz pillows, backyard swimming pool and a Ferrari in the garage - that makes many New Yorkers deeply jealous, and headed to the steel-and-glass tower in midtown Manhattan where he directed the firm's bond business.

    In the afternoon, he hosted a charity auction in the city to benefit sick children. That night, he attended a Morgan Stanley holiday party at the swanky rooftop bar at Ink48 Hotel. When he left the party, he looked for the black town car that was supposed to take him to his $2.7 million mansion in the wealthy enclave of Darien. He couldn't find the car, so he hailed a yellow cab.

    In less than two hours, what allegedly began as a tussle over a cab fare, which the taxi driver said was $204, led to a struggle that could cost Jennings his career.

    Charges Dropped Against Former Morgan Stanley Banker - Metropolis - WSJ

    The criminal case against a former Morgan Stanley executive charged with stabbing a cab driver following a fare dispute was dropped Monday after a Connecticut state’s attorney revealed that the driver waited to turn the knife over to police.

    The driver, Mohamed Ammar, “had the knife the whole time,” said supervisory assistant state’s attorney Steven Weiss. “He had ample opportunity to tell police and he didn’t do that.”

    The defendant, William Bryan Jennings, was charged with assault and hate crimes for attacking Ammar last December after the driver took Jennings from Manhattan to Jennings’ home in Darien, Conn.

    Ammar claimed Jennings refused to pay the fare and that he drove off with Jennings still in his cab to look for police.

    In an ensuing scuffle, Ammar was stabbed in the hand with a pen knife. Ammar, who is from Egypt, also reported that Jennings told him to “go back” to his country.

    Jennings was at the time Morgan Stanley’s co-head of U.S. bond underwriting. He is no longer at the company.

    Ammar told police that after Jennings took out the pen knife, he began stabbing towards Ammar's neck and cut the taxi driver's hand, which later required six stitches. According to Ammar, Jennings cursed at him and then shouted "I'm going to kill you. You should go back to your country!"

    This is just another incidence of the victim screwing up their own case so hopelessly that there is no choice BUT to drop the charges.

    He tried to call the police to settle it. You don't go in a cab and expect not to pay the price.

    Why did the cabbie move the knife? Why did he touch it? Why did he put his fingerprints on the knife? Did he think that there would be some kind of prosecution on his word alone?
