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.
That story emerged in March, when Mr. Jennings—who no longer works at Morgan Stanley, according to Bloomberg—was charged with assault and intimidation by bigotry.
Accounts varied. Mr. Ammar said that Mr. Jennings refused to pay the fare of $204 dollars, told the cabbie “I’m going to kill you. You should go back to your country,” and stabbed him in the hand with a 2 1/2 inch blade during a roadside altercation. Mr. Jennings said that the driver demanded $294, then started driving the banker back to New York City when he refused to pay.
