Morgan Stanley banker pleads not guilty in cab driver assault
By Michelle Conlin | Reuters – 1 hr 15 mins ago

STAMFORD, Connecticut (Reuters) - A senior Morgan Stanley banker pleaded not guilty on Friday to hate crime, theft and assault charges stemming from an incident last December that police say escalated from a dispute over a $200-plus cab fare to a knife attack on the driver.

William Bryan Jennings, who had been co-head of North American fixed-income capital markets at the Wall Street bank until being put on leave following his arrest last month, entered "not guilty" pleas to each of three charges against him.

**SNIP**

Ammar, who lives in Queens, New York, and is an Egyptian-born U.S. citizen, told police that Jennings began threatening him and using racial slurs.

The banker then took out a pen knife and began stabbing at the driver through an open partition, police said. When the driver tried to close the partition, Jennings stabbed his hand.

William Bryan Jennings?

Is he related in some way to William Jennings Bryan of “Cross of Gold” fame?

They agreed to a $204 fare, but at the destination, the Muzzie cabbie attempted to extort $300 from the passenger. Muzzie gunned the cab away from the house, threatening to drive back to Manhattan. Sounds like passenger door open, Muzzie driving erratically, passenger felt life was in danger, and attempted to stop the Muzzie with a pen knife. Oooh, lethal...and a “hate crime.” Sic semper SandMonkey.

I’m thinking that his parents must have been rabid Democrats to name their son William Bryan Jennings.

The muzzie took off, after a failed shakedown. I would have tried to stop him too!
