Remember William Bryan Jennings wild ride? Last December, after Morgan Stanley’s Christmas party, the firm’s former head of bond underwriting hailed a cab in Midtown and directed the driver to his home in Darien, Conn. When they arrived, cabbie Mohamed Ammar quoted a price that Mr. Jennings found excessive, and in the fracas that ensued, was alleged to have stabbed Mr. Ammar in the hand with a pen knife.
Charges against [Jennings] are set to be dismissed, Connecticut police and the cabbie’s attorney said on Friday.
The banker, William Bryan Jennings, of Darien, Connecticut, is due in court on Monday in Connecticut Superior Court in Stamford, about 40 miles ( 64 kilometers) northeast of New York. In March, he pleaded not guilty to charges of intimidation as a hate crime, theft and assault against cab driver Mohamed Ammar of Queens.
Darien sleeps soundly tonight.
